Leadership for ELLs - 31 March Primary ESOL Weekly Update

  • Public
By Janet McQueen

Hi Everyone

I hope you took the time to read our first guest post last week which was in the attachment to the post. I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic of ELLs school leadership. Maybe you could share what works in your school, what you would love to be able to implement or what you find are the stumbling blocks in your school? Do you agree with Alyson's findings, or not? 
If you could introduce or change one thing in all schools in New Zealand to improve outcomes for ELL's what would it be? 
Our Primary Community 
Last week we  shared: 
  • The latest Pasifika Update on using plays and extended texts with Pasifika students 
  • A new reading resource from Reading Warrior on Sonny Bill Williams 
  • CLESOL Conference is on Thursday 10 – Sunday 13 July 2014 in Wellington. The cheapest registration fee is the very early bird registration which closes on  Friday 11 April. I would love to see many of you there.
