As part of the shared professional studies programme, all trainees undertake frequent action research projects as part of their training. This allows for rigorous reflection on teaching practice, underpinned by cutting edge research.
This session was delivered by Bow School and the focus was on teaching students with English as an additional language (EAL). A specialist from Bow presented a session that enabled trainees to put themselves in the shoes of an EAL learner. It was an eye opening experience!
Trainees spent time discussing and debating the professional viewpoints about immersion of students with EAL into subject specific classrooms.
High quality action research and presentations followed in October. Trainees trialled the use of innovative styles of glossary, visual supports, and a range of other differentiated approaches. For the feedback session, 30 trainees from other training routes joined us. This enabled the professional network to grow and allowed quality feedback for all presentations.
