EAL Support

English as an Additional Language (EAL) support uses a co-teaching inclusion model to meet the needs of students in the classroom.

EAL support is developed through the use of the WIDA instructional model. The WIDA program provides a program of rich standards, learning materials and assessments that teachers draw on and use. These include the ‘can do’ assessment statements that are used to measure students’ levels of language acquisition on admission to the school, as well as monitor their support throughout the program. The school has chosen to use the WIDA model as the WIDA vision matches the school’s vision of learning. WIDA’s core values are:

  • Innovation: Drawing upon research and practice to create the best resources for children, youth and educators.
  • Service: Exceeding expectations with trusted and knowledgeable support of our clients and stakeholders. Can Do Philosophy: Recognizing and building upon the assets, contributions, and potential of culturally and linguistically diverse children and youth.
  • Collaboration: Facilitating interaction among educators, state and local educational agencies, researchers, policy-makers, and experts worldwide.
