|DATE:||21 March 2018|
|LOCATION:||London Road Campus - LO22 G0, University of Reading London Road campus Reading RG1 5AQ|
This is a free research-into-practice event for teachers and education practitioners working with children who speak English as an additional language.
Target audience: Primary and secondary school teachers and senior managers, specialist learning support assistants, speech and language therapists, educational psychologists and local authority personnel working with EAL children.
Following on from our previous successful research-into-practice events in 2016 and 2017, the Institute of Education (IoE) and the Centre of Literacy and Multilingualism (CeLM) are staging another event for 2018. This event will draw on presentations from academics, practitioners, and policy makers in order to make links between research and practice related to understanding and supporting children who speak English as an additional language.
The event will focus on four areas of research and practice with EAL children:
- Vocabulary, language and literacy
- Home language and literacy
The first part of the afternoon gives attendees the opportunity to hear presentations on all four areas from academics, policy makers, and expert practitioners. For the second part of the afternoon attendees can attend a marketplace forum to find out more about research, practice and policy in relation to EAL children.
