Walk into almost any English-language classroom and you’ll encounter a mix of students with a range of abilities, interests, learning styles and English levels. It can be very challenging, then, for teachers to provide their students with the individualized support and instruction they need to learn best while also moving the whole class and curriculum forward as required. And if the differences in English levels between students are vast, it can feel impossible! In order to promote learning opportunities for all our young learners and enable all of them to achieve to the best of their abilities, we must find ways to tailor our lessons to support the abilities and English levels of all students in our classroom, not only the majority. But how? In this webinar, teacher trainer Anna Hasper will provide a variety of practical ideas for managing the mixed-level young learner classroom and adjusting our lessons to serve the needs of all students without modifying the expected language outcomes.
