  • Easy to find articles and podcasts all related to working overseas and teaching diverse children
  • Links to resources and CPD are still all there
  • Research section on my Action Research project: Finding the best methods to embed English language with speakers of other languages, in a non-English environment
  • My blog – covers international teaching and early years. I will begin to post online events useful for both here.

Early Years EAL in International Schools

I’m excited to be partaking in the FOBISIA online EJaws for Early Years Language, Communication and Literacy at The International School @ ParkCity this Friday. This is my second FOBISIA EJaws for Early Years I have attended, so I am really looking forward to networking and making new connections.
However, this time I am presenting a webinar! I will speak about using focus groups to drive forward teaching and learning and how to best support English Language Learners. If you would like to read the summary of our focus group findings then head to my new Research page.

I’m on the schedule for FOBISIA EJaws

Free DEI plans and stories

I wanted to share this link as the resources are fantastic for parents with children or those of us teaching young children.

The company is Right now they offer free resources to teach Personal/Social/Emotion learning to young kids, I think the resources could work all the way through Primary school age.

Especially useful are the 6 weeks plans/activities you can download for free. Each week has its own PDF book. Week 6 has a book based on the coronavirus, entitled something like ‘Seeing Rainbows’. If you have anxious children right now this book is really clear and honest, not scary at all.

I shared it with my daughter today and I really like the ending when the world has returned to normal, as I just don’t think kids can envision this right now.
The organization is not for profit and offering all of the 6 weeks (books and ideas) for free as they are just, well, excellent people. If you like it, you can donate.

A fabulous organization.
