Read and Write for Google Chrome-Highland Guidance

Highland Literacy have posted resources page links for Google Read and Write.

This is a great Google extension for EAL learners (and pupils with literacy difficulties) with many tools to support pupils learning, all in one place: a reader,  a translator, a PDF reader/annotator, predictive text and many more.

Understanding and Supporting Multilingual Language and Literacy

Good link to a CPD session hosted by LALCO (Language and Literacy Research Group) looking at:-

  1. Teachers’ beliefs about meeting the literacy needs of pupils learning English as an additional language
  2. Bilingualism and (bi)literacy: myths, facts and challenges
  3. Early reading in languages other than English: similarities, differences and transfer
  4. Multi-contextual vocabulary instruction for children learning English as an additional language
