Assessing EAL speaking is notoriously difficult to get right.
This programme demonstrates how one new method of assessing the speaking ability of EAL pupils is introduced across a school.
We discover how EAL expert Ros Ferrara's method of assessment can help, inform a teacher's future planning and assist pupil language development.
In Assessing Speaking, you can observe the model applied in the classroom as Ros' team teaches alongside class teacher Sally McAvoy of St. Anne's RC Primary School in Vauxhall. The lesson focuses on problem solving, collaborative practice and speaking and presentation assessment.
