ECU Publications Pre. 2011

The three volumes which make up this study describe in detail how a number of teachers in different school situations in different parts of Australia undertook the assessment of young children's development of English as a second language. Most of the teachers worked in pre-primary to Year 3 classrooms where the majority of the children were aged between five and eight years. The majority worked in a mainstream context in which the number of children speaking English as a second language (ESL) varied from more than half the class to two or three students. About a third of the ...

Multicultural & Diversity Newsletter

The emerging philosophy of the Multicultural and Diversity Committee is that excellence in education cannot be achieved without educational equity for all who enter our schools. This includes (but is not limited to) females, males, people of color, people who live in poverty, people who live alternative lifestyles, people with disabilities, people with a language background other than English, people of all ages, and people who have recently immigrated to the United States. Educational equity is defined by processes that work against marginalization and foster knowledge of and respect for the diverse nature of our population.

Multicultural & Diversity Newsletter

There is a recent preoccupation in American schools to involve parents and the community in our children's education. Hillary Clinton's "It takes a village" is a phrase that has become almost as catchy in the 90's as Nancy Reagan's "Just say no" was in the 80's, and unfortunately almost as naively simplistic.

The Assessment And Evaluation Of Esl Children's Writing : A Case Study Of One Esl Primary Child, Liza Phillips

In this study, a qualitative research design was employed. Data were collected from one Year Five ESL student over a three week period in order to determine: a) which features of his English writing were identified by each evaluative framework ...

The subjects of this study were eight ESL learners from grades 3 and 4 of primary school (five female and three male). Four subjects were born in Australia, and the remaining four were born overseas.

As a qualitative case study utilizing naturalistic inquiry with an emergent design, the study included detailed observations of the school, school personnel, classroom environment, instruction, and the two students.

The major guiding question follows: How do first grade students who are limited in their English proficiency experience the dual processes of acquiring the English language and acquiring English literacy in a mainstream classroom?
