Here is a typical classroom scenario: out of the thirty children, two-thirds speak a different language at home and only speak English at school. Even though many pupils' English skills are almost non-existent, teachers are expected to provide the national curriculum for every child in the class.

Teaching Children English as an Additional Language solves this problem with a ten-week teaching programme of units and lesson activities for children aged seven-eleven (Key Stage 2) new to English. It will help these children learn some very basic English sentences, questions and vocabulary, to get them through regular day-to-day routines more easily. By offering a flexible step by step approach this book helps EAL teachers to:

identify learners' individual needs

teach grammar and vocabulary

support teaching through speaking and listening

assess pupils to inform future planning

The programme also contains emergency lessons to support learners in the first three days, cross curricular links, ways of using a home-school learning book and an opportunity for the child to make a booklet about themselves. It fosters the child's home language, incorporates different learning styles as well as including a wealth of carefully tailored, themed resources. The programme is complete with activities, resources and assessment materials and helpful tips on how to develop a successful EAL department.

'This is a very useful resource that has a place in every school. It is thorough and easy to use for either a trained TA or class-teacher. Most importantly it will set children with EAL on the road to success.' - Headteacher, Tower Hamlets

'We have used Caroline's approach to teaching English as an additional language for some years now and it has been particulary successful with newly arrived pupils at Key Stage 2 who are early stage learners of English.' 'This programme is a carefully structured, step by step approach, with assessment built in. So the course effectively supports non expert teachers and teaching assistant to use these materials to teach early stage learners of EAL and develop knowledge and understanding of the language development needs of these pupils' 'Schools in Tower Hamlets who have used Caroline's programme have reported good progress for their pupils' - Tower Hamlets Ethnic Minority Achievement Service
