The TEAL project, launched in 2015, is an online resource for teachers of primary and secondary level students who are learning English as an Additional Language (EAL) in Australia. It brings together a range of tools and advice for the assessment and reporting of the English language proficiency and progress of students within an ‘assessment for learning’ framework. In this webinar, Anna-Lise Wallis gave a guided tour of these resources and discussed the ways they can be used in the classroom.
Anna-Lise is a Senior Project Officer in the EAL Unit of the Department of Education and Training. She is a co-presenter of the 3-day Putting TEAL into Practice professional learning program and has previously taught EAL at a language centre, university and mainstream secondary college. She is a GAT and NAPLAN marker and Year 12 EAL assessor.
