Making the best use of these units

At the beginning of the class, make sure that students understand what they are doing and why. ‘We are doing the exercise on page (12) to help you to remember key words / to help your writing skills / to help with grammar’ etc.

You can create your personal teaching resource by printing these units in full and filing them by subject in a large ring binder.

Encourage students to:
o Bring the relevant subject textbooks to language support class. It does not matter if they have different textbooks as the activities in these units refer to vocabulary and other items that will be found in all subject textbooks. These units are based on curriculum

materials.
o Take some responsibility for their own learning programmes by:

Developing a personal dictionary for different subjects,
topics, and other categories of language, on an on-going basis. This prompt is a reminder.

Recording what they have learnt on the
Learning Record, which should be distributed at
the start of each unit.
Keeping their own files with good examples of the work
produced in language support for different subjects and
topics. This file will be an invaluable learning resource
in supporting mainstream learning.

Don’t forget that many of the activities in these units are suitable as homework tasks, for self-study, or for use in the subject classroom with the agreement of the subject teacher.
Indicates that answers may be found at the end
of the unit.
