EALD Staff Meeting November 2015

  1. 1. EALD Language and Literacy Levels November 2015
  2. 2. SMARTA Goals • Teachers are able to apply the Language & Literacy Levels (L& LL) to plan, document and assess every student’s growth in writing. • All students progress by at least one level each year, moving towards two levels for EALD students. • Planning using L& L Levels is evident and supportive of differentiation – goals for EALD learners are linked to L & L Levels.
  3. 3. Plan • Developed with Rosie and Camilla as a capacity building process • Lead Team – ½ day PD and 2 days levelling (Term 1 and Term 2) • PD for whole staff – Information Reports and Persuasive Writing, Grammar aspects • Staff levelling EALD students for sentence structure, and then rest of the class (sentence structure)
  4. 4. Moderation Process • Vicki and Daniela invited to be moderators • Our school was moderated – 10 samples, on the whole our levelling processes were affirmed • Results:
