Realising Equality and Achievement for Learners | REAL

Realising Equality and Achievement for Learners | REAL | ESOL for Teacher Educators | Scoop.it
The REAL Project is the first national UK project to systematically consider how to respond to the particular and urgent needs of gifted and talented learners with English as an additional language (EAL).

REAL works from the premise that all learners should have the opportunity to be identified as gifted and talented. The project has developed approaches which enable schools and LAs to transform the way they address issues surrounding EAL achievement, particularly for learners from disadvantaged backgrounds.

REAL provides tools that enable schools to assess any new arrival as potentially gifted and talented, or strategies and resources to develop capacity to personalise provision for gifted and talented BME learners and advanced learners.

A fascinating tool that teachers can use to classify words in any text. Highlights common general English words, academic words etc using different colours.
