In this workshop, Elena and Liaqat will share their experiences establishing and implementing specialised programs for recently-arrived EAL students in a culturally-diverse secondary school setting, from Year 7-10. They will explain the features of the various academic and non-academic programs, including both embedded and parallel EAL academic programs, community programs and transition processes. There will be a particular focus on the “Connect” program, designed to support recently-arrived EAL students over 16 years of age. They will share their pedagogical approaches and the related strategies they employ and look at measures of success. Resources and processes will also be shared in order to assist schools to develop programs tailored to their own settings.
