Teacher education and transition between pre-primary and primary

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Participation on Expert Panel 'Current research and critical issues in primary education'
Teaching English in the primary years (6-12) has become a basic skill across many learning contexts. This interest in early language learning and teaching has been accompanied by the need to decouple ELL from adult-focused perspectives, the determination of young learner experts in developing theoretical and practice-based age-appropriate pedagogies and a desire to better understand the ever evolving complexities of ELL contexts. This panel will address the successes and challenges of primary English, identify lessons learnt from the last 20-30 years of teaching and researching English in the early years and reflect on how this impacts on the future of primary English and the rush to introduce English in pre-school
