I have a nice little leaflet about the first 100 days as an EAL coordinator that has been put out by the NALDIC's EAL Journal. We have a small department serving from 50-70 students. Our main model is 3x week withdrawal by year groups. In the past, the two support teachers shared the year groups but this year I want to split them among us and increase our in-class support opportunities. We are a 5 form primary school so we are spread a bit thin. I am looking at any one's ideas or experiences that might give me ideas. I'm looking at the timetables today to find ways to not only spread our withdrawal support across the curriculum instead of only during English/literacy lessons but insert ourselves in classes regardless of the subject. How do you find time to collaborate with class teachers? If you can't get that time, how do you go into a class 'prepared'? I do have access to the medium term plans and have, in the past, brought into class basic resources for support like word/picture mats, anchor charts and the like that support the curricular area being taught in the lesson. This has required me to run around to the teachers and ask what they, individually are doing on the day because they don't always follow their timetable to the letter, for many reasons. Have I just answered my own query? Any feedback much appreciated.
