The twenty Great Ideas pages provide teachers with the rationale behind using the various tried and tested approaches and strategies recommended for use with everyone in the class, but in particular, with learners who use English as an Additional Language. Each Great Idea includes links to relevant resources and four Great Ideas include short guidance videos. Each week additional Great Ideas videos will be posted on the website.
This section of the site includes advice, guidance and resources for teachers working with learners and their parents/carers. For example, the parental involvement section includes flyers, available in 17 of the commonly spoken languages in English schools, which schools can give to parents so that they are able to help their child(ren) to learn. Find out more here about the guidance.
