The Literacy Teaching Toolkit provides practical advice and high impact teaching practices to improve student outcomes in reading, writing and speaking and listening. In 2019, the Foundation to Level 6 Literacy Teaching Toolkit (F-6 Toolkit) was updated to include specific strategies to differentiate for EAL learners.
This webinar introduces the EAL content incorporated in the F-6 Toolkit and how it may be used to support EAL learners. The session is aimed at primary school teachers.
