From EAL experts Chris Pim and Catharine Driver come 100 ideas for providing secondary teachers with strategies and activities to support the induction, assessment and learning of students with English as an additional language (EAL) in tutor time, in specific subjects and at whole-school level. There is so much pressure on teachers to deliver engaging and innovative lessons that both adhere to the demands of the curriculum and get the necessary results. Having to plan lessons, implement strategies and create effective resources for EAL students can be a challenge, and with over 15% of secondary school students exposed to a language other than English in their home (according to 2016 data from the Department for Education), it is a challenge affecting every teacher. This book provides practical plans for giving EAL learners general support, but also includes ideas linked to specific subjects, especially key problem areas such as mathematics and science, to help EAL learners get the most out of lessons. 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Supporting EAL Learners is a treasure trove of adaptable ideas to use for students who are beginners and advanced learners of EAL.

In an era when responsibility for exam results lies with them and not their students it's time to redress the balance so that students take more of the responsibility for their learning. A class can be skilled and motivated to learn without a teacher always having to lead. Engaging learners in this way unpicks intrinsic motivation, the foundation that underpins a productive learning environment and helps to develop independent learning.Based on five years of intensive research through Osiris Education's award-winning Outstanding Teaching Intervention programme, during which the authors have trained more than 500 teachers to teach over 1,300 lessons in schools nationwide, this book is packed with proven advice and innovative tools developed in these successful outstanding lessons.Written in the same humorous, thought-provoking style with which they both teach and train, Andy and Mark aim to challenge all who teach, from NQTs to seasoned professionals, to reflect on their day-to-day practise and set an agenda for sustainable improvement.
