Engaging literacy strategies for EAL/D students to improve learning outcomes

As numbers of EAL/D students are increasing in our classrooms, we are often concerned about how we can ensure that they are included and able to meaningfully engage in diverse learning experiences. In this webinar, we will explore EAL/D strategies that you can use to create a space for inclusion and higher levels of engagement to achieve learning growth for your current and future EAL/D students.


In this webinar, participants will explore how EAL/D and cooperative learning strategies can be used in the two important macro skills of reading and writing. These strategies will also enhance the engagement of non-EAL/D students. We will also look at a sample EAL/D lesson plan and important additional information that we can harness to improve planning for effective and inclusive instruction.


This webinar will allow participants to:

  • Strategise and add EAL/D pedagogies to their reading and writing lesson plans.
  • Create a more inclusive and engaging classroom for EAL/D students.
  • Understand some of the language learning interferences that EAL/D students face.



  • Early Years Educators
