Team Approach to Language Learners (TALL) is a school-based professional development opportunity led by experienced ESOL and literacy facilitator Gaylene Price. It involves a school team of about six participants; a leader / class teacher(s) / teaching assistants / bilingual teachers. The project follows a 20 week (two term) focus and includes face-to-face workshops, online modules, data analysis and a framework of inquiry and reflection.
The school TALL team will focus on and build school systems of support and knowledge for teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners. It builds a core of expertise which can be shared school-wide.
TALL is a project funded by the Ministry of Education. For further information please contact Kirsty MacDiarmid, Senior Adviser ESOL.
