This lesson gives EAL learners structures for communicating what they have and haven’t understood during all lessons – and all parts of the lesson – say Caroline Scott and Isabelle Bridger Eames…
Self-assessment is a vital part of learning, allowing children to take control over their learning. This lesson will give EAL learners some language structures that can be used in all lessons and all parts of lessons to communicate what they have and haven’t understood.
Learners will use the vocabulary linked to understanding and will be given a sliding scale so they can communicate shades of understanding of whole lessons or parts of lessons.
Learners will use the connection, activation, demonstration and consolidation learning cycle to gain confidence and embed this new vocabulary.
What they’ll learn
- Language structures based around the language of self-assessment
- A sliding scale of vocabulary to communicate how much of the lesson or part of the lesson they have understood
