This workshop will give NT teachers and other educators an introduction to teaching students who speak English as an additional language or dialect.

Multiliteracy approach in superdiverse classrooms

The aims of this workshop are:

  • to learn the science of meaningful learning
  • to raise awareness on the power of literacy as a social justice tool

This unique methodology comprising learning and teaching approaches to EAL and Literacy is a powerful tool to accelerate and intensify processes of cross-cultural social integration, which might be useful to other practitioners assisting superdiverse communities.

Use your teaching practice to promote social change and to empower learners which results in a professional practice which meets the needs of a superdiverse cohort.
