Oral expression, a sound knowledge of high frequency vocabulary, depth and breadth of low frequency vocabulary, alongside phonological awareness and reading fluency, are pre-requisites to developing as a readers and writers. In the Baseline English resource and programme, gaps in these ‘basics’ are carefully and systematically scaffolded whereby each student’s unique developmental English language learning pathway is followed and developed.
This training programme for teachers and language assistants (three full-day workshops) prepares you to implement the programme optimally. When used effectively, this resource and programme truly ‘enables’ students expressively and in literacy, as well as lifting their confidence, fluency and level of focus and engagement. The resource and programme can be used with learners across ages and stages of English language learning.
