Getting Started

I would like to thank Wendy for starting this forum. The idea for EAL 2.0 came from Wendy's curiosity about ISB's student language survey and my interest in JIS's school language policy. An exchange of ideas with EAL/ESL teachers in International Schools can enrich teaching and learning experiences. EAL 2.0 can act as a meeting space for international EAL teachers willing to share expertise, float ideas and give feedback. Together we can make a… Continue

I agree. And the focus of this forum is near and dear to my heart as you know. I'm finishing up the second tech course this week and next. Then I'll have more time for this forum. Excuse my limited profile here for a couple more weeks.

And that's the big idea - create a space for communication. We have end-of year testing approaching fast - so I will be mainly absorbing information at this time.

Hi Barbara! It's good to connect with you again. Our ESOL team, including Wendy, attended your weekend workshop at ISB a couple of years ago. I left JIS last year after eight years in MS ESOL and am in my first year at the American School of Doha in Qatar.

Hi Barbara!

There are about 910 students in our high school and middle school combined. We don't have an ESL program in the high school and only one ESL teacher in the middle school who provides support classes during elective slots that are mixed across grade levels. The middle school can accommodate ELLs two years below grade level Our elementary school has just over 900 students with four ESL teachers providing support. After eight years at JIS in MSESOL, I am now working in the upper elementary at ASD.

Hello Martha,
ISB has over 300 ESL students K-12 with 18 ESL teachers (some part-time). I wonder how you schedule ESL support in the classes in ES. Do you cluster the students with specific teachers or pull students out of class?

Hi Barbara,

Could you send the language survey you give to the parents of new students? I will post the language survey we use for the middle school students in the common area of this Ning. I look forward to working with you this year!

Hi Barbara,

At last, the reason we starting this Ning! Please take a look at the online survey I posted in the latest blog entry. Do you think there is anything I should add or modify?

Hope all is well in Bangkok!
