Buddy
Krashan’s (1988) theory of
‘’input hypothesis’ is similar to
Vygotsky’s ‘zone of proximal
development’. This looks at
language being gained by the
learner if it is one stage
ahead of their current
linguistic level. A buddy can
assist with this by explaining
what is required in a lesson.
Bruner (1978) looks at scaffolding
which uses interaction again to help a
student achieve. Buddies can provide
this support if it is done
constructively to help achieve a
specific goal.

Student
Voice
KQ: What is it we want
to hear from students
that will help improve
their learning outcomes?
Why use Student Voice?
In depth understanding of learners
and needs compared to school data
Improves relationship with our learners
Shares a global perspective across the
whole school
Engages EAL students in having an active
role in their learning.
Develops personal independence

Vocabulary knowledge
enables students to
comprehend what they
read, and the act of
reading itself provides
the opportunity for
students to encounter
and learn new words.
…So the more words
students know, the more
likely they are to learn
new words easily
(Shefelbine, 1990)
Strategies for
teaching/using
keywords or key
vocabulary include:

The students were
able to select
appropriate key words
in their additional
language and
therefore learn
Omaggio (1979)
further contributed
that comprehension in
ESL students is more
likely when linking
‘chanting patterns’
with pictorial ideas.

discovered that the
position of text and
images due to visual

Assessment
(Success criteria)
Evidence:
Strategies
Upon entry to the school in year
7 each pupil sits a test :
Speaking, Listening, Reading and
Writing.
If so, EAL pupils are
graded 1-3 to determine
how much support they
will receive inside/outside
of the classroom.
Induction for ‘New to English’
students is run for a whole term
tu comprendes ?
BUT - I had no idea whether she fully understood.
UNTIL - I developed a self assessment tool for understanding.
Using my evidence I created
a self assessment sheet
Using a self assessment
sheet leads to:
 Language independence
 Instant visual feedback
on the students’
understanding.
 Inter-cultural symbols
 Learning Objectives are
simply copied from the
board.
= Perfect!!
