Access to learning in school is not likely to be equitable if pupils’ first language is not the school language. In the UK pupils from an English as an Additional Language (EAL) background are expected to manage the learning of subject content (e.g. science or history) and the English language at the same time. The achievement of these pupils can be enhanced by a well-adapted curriculum. In this talk I will discuss some of the principled approaches to integrating the teaching of subject content and English. Issues of collaboration between subject specialists and EAL teachers will be highlighted. Classroom examples will be used where appropriate.
