ESOL Online. Every child literate - a shared responsibility.

Writing

Teachers scaffold a student’s learning in order to help them achieve. For an English language learner this will include scaffolding to support a student’s curriculum learning goals and their use of the English language.

Teachers should know why they are selecting a particular strategy, determine where in their teaching and learning cycle it is best used and reflect on whether its use has been effective or not. At all times the ESOL principles and their knowledge of the student should guide the planning, teaching and task sequencing process.

Strategies used in a co-operative setting provide greater opportunities for the students to notice and use language.
