Tools and techniques to create inclusive learning environments and lessons for students with English as a second language.

Many countries in the world are culturally and linguistically diverse. The EAL (English as a Second Language) Pocketbook is for teachers of pupils learning English as an additional language, whether in rural or urban contexts. It provides tips, tools and techniques to ensure that all pupils can thrive in their learning. Author Alice Washbourne is a consultant EAL advisor. Her inclusive approach is modelled on 'the ladder to success' beginning with the learner's skills and strengths, building on these to make learning cognitively challenging, then providing scaffolding to support their move towards independent learning. Useful guidance for both novice and experienced practitioners.
