Summary Schools in Australia are diverse, both in the numbers of English language learners and the multilpicity of cultural and linguistic backgreounds from which the learners come. Many students, beyond the very beginning stages of learning English, will be in the mainstream classes and may receive little support fromspecialist English language teachers. This book addresses English language learning (ELL) pedagogical practices, and will be particularly useful for mainstream teachers who have limited experience working with EAL/D (English as an additional language/dialect) students. It begins by considering general ELL (ESL, EAL/D) theory, and later examines specific theories in the areas of oracy, reading and writing. Many examples in the book are illustrated with authentic and recent student work samples. This book also helps readers to plan an effective ELL program for the diverse needs of English language learners.--Publisher
