TESOLANZ is proud to announce its second online event for 2022.
Collaborations between language specialists and subject teachers to better support the linguistic and literacy development of learners.
The increasing diversity of learners in terms of linguistic and literacy abilities at all education levels has resulted in the search for appropriate approaches and strategies to managing this situation. Until recently, deficit models have dominated. These models focus on upskilling those learners perceived as lacking in the skills needed to participate in mainstream classrooms. A shift has been taking place, however, and approaches seeking to change the practice of mainstream classroom teaching to accommodate the language and literacy needs of all learners are starting to emerge. In this session, language specialists from different levels of the education sector, primary, secondary and tertiary, working within this relatively new approach share their experiences of collaborating with subject specialist colleagues.
