Teaching toolbag expands

Teachers from about 20 schools in the Hornsby area can offer more targeted support to their English as an additional language/dialect (EAL/D) students following a Gonski-funded professional learning day hosted by Lane Cove Public School. Sessions focused on differentiating writing tasks and scaffolding to support EAL/D learners in mainstream classes, plus using technology such as iPad apps to provide adjusted work for these learners.
