English Language Learning Progressions (ELLP) Pathway – Foundation to Stage 3 and ELLP Pathway Student Agency Record

The ELLP Pathway – Foundation to Stage 3 and ELLP Pathway Student Agency Record are optional resources to support the ELLP matrices.

They are closely aligned to the ELLP matrices, with additional detail from ELLP booklets and other Ministry of Education resources. They assist primary and intermediate teachers to plan day-to-day support for English language learners. Secondary teachers may also find them useful for learners working in Foundation to Stage 3. The ELLP Student Agency Record assists with fostering learner agency.

The ELLP Pathway Record of Progress may be used as an alternative to the ELLP Record of Progress to record a student’s progress using highlighted indicators. The highlighting informs the ‘achieved’ stages for twice yearly ESOL funding applications.

The ELLP Pathway – Foundation to Stage 3 links to eight short Vimeo videos featuring Dr Jannie van Hees. They focus on knowing your learner and supporting English language learners.  

Knowing your learner

The family language Day-to-day code switching
Concept and knowledge gaps Immigrant dislocation and adjustment

The family language – its closeness to or distance from English

ELL (English language learner) is a generalised term. This Vimeo examines the differing challenges faced by new learners of English based on their heritage language.

Concept and knowledge gaps, and cognitive frustration 

Content learning is language dependent and may slow down while a learner focuses on learning English. This Vimeo looks at the issues involved and strategies to assist.

Day-to-day code switching

Code switching is switching between languages, which may be done internally. This Vimeo discusses the uses and benefits of code switching for bilingual learners.

Immigrant dislocation and adjustment

Immigrating to a new country generally causes considerable upheaval. This Vimeo explains the challenges faced by immigrant families and suggests ways to help.

Supporting English language learners 

For new learners Scaffolding learning
Working in the learner's 'Goldilocks zone' Recycling learning and language

For new learners – focused attention to build-foundational English language knowledge

This Vimeo focuses on the need to prioritise the establishment of foundational English skills of very new learners and the long term benefits of this.

Working in the learner’s ‘Goldilocks zone'

Learning in the ‘just right’ zone – not too little, not too much – is most effective. This Vimeo gives practical advice about recognising when learning is just right.

Scaffolding learning

Scaffolding learning is multi-faceted. This Vimeo includes practical examples of scaffolding and how to merge the ‘known’ with new learning.

Recycling learning and language – a major factor influencing language acquisition

Much of what we do becomes automatic when we do it many times over. This Vimeo examines the importance of recycling and re-encountering language.
