Advice is included on: - developing whole-school policies - creating positive classroom settings to promote learning - using drama - supporting bilingual learners in the early years - the importance of home-school links There are also plenty of practical suggestions for ways to improve classroom practice, and some photocopiable material.

Reviews

'This book provides an excellent, practical guide on how to develop a bilingual approach in the classroom. In each chapter there are examples of practical, easy-to-implement strategies, which are firmly rooted in good EAL practice. Rather than suggesting that teachers have to adopt something that is additional or new, the idea is to build a bilingual approach into ongoing classroom activities and approaches, thereby promoting a sense of cultural belonging for all children' - Janna Welsby, EAL Programme Consultant, Manchester Education Partnership'
