|Meeting Description:||The variation between the language of the home and community and the language of school is at the heart of a great deal of the underachievement of identifiable groups of learners in Britain. These learners may speak English either as a first or second language. They draw on the language of home and community to make meanings within school. School subjects draw on different kinds of language. These variations in language do not match.
This conference focuses on moving learners from everyday language to the academic language needed to succeed in school subjects at Key Stages 2 and 3.
