Dr. Virginia Pauline Rojas

The time has come to rethink past policies and practices so that all school leaders and teachers develop responsive mindsets and actions. First and foremost is a call for EAL specialists to shift from ‘fixers of learners’ TO ‘creators, collaborators, consultants, and coaches’ to build and sustain an advocacy ecosystem where multilingual learners benefit from all teachers as language teachers. These four sessions recap how to make this work a reality.

Student engagement is critical to learning. We know that when students are engaged, it has a huge impact on whether students retain and reapply what they learn in the future.

Two past paradigms in EAL account for the historical practice of English-only policies and practices in schools: (1) it was believed that ‘more and only’ English was the quickest path to English-language acquisition and (2) deficit-thinking positioned students learning English as needing to be ‘fixed’ as quickly as possible with the solution being the enforcement of English-only policies and practices.

Dr Lucy Hoi Yin Wong

The integration of literacy text into student inquiry is an indicator of a good practice in an inquiry-based additional language classroom. For example, a story book as part of a unit of inquiry with a particular social studies emphasis to support students conceptual understanding of the unit of inquiry.

When we think of “inclusion,” that most often refers to general education classrooms that make provisions to include a few learners with special needs.
