chapter  5
English as a First Language in the School Curriculum
Pages 50

This chapter’s first half discusses a key idea for the book as a whole: the central role that language has in learning. I look at the practical issue of providing professional development in language in learning, and also present some working policies for doing that. Later discussion covers the assessment of proficiency in English as a first language and I present working polices already developed for use in schools in the area of assessment.
