ACE Darwin Dinner Series – November

Wednesday 24th November 2021

Event Details

Members of the ACE Northern Territory Darwin Branch Committee invite you to join us for the November ACE Darwin Dinner Series.

This month’s theme: Setting up and implementing an Intensive English Program (IEP).

In 2017 Woodroffe Primary School was selected to setup an IEP in Palmerston, to cater for primary school students that have newly arrived in Australia, this includes refugees and immigrants.

This month’s DDS event will discuss a range of issues associated with the establishment and operation of an IEP including:

  • Resourcing the IEP for students from multi-year levels, that speak a range of languages from their homelands and have variable experiences of schooling and attendance.
  • Content-based approach to assist with differentiation and the explicit teaching of grammar and phonics.
  • Being able to compare the differences and similarities of teaching EAL/D students from many backgrounds including my experiences in Aboriginal Education.
