New publication with guidelines for primary teachers
A practical read has been added to the publications: Language and Languages in the Primary School. These guidelines by David Little and Déirdre Kirwan are aimed at primary school teachers and principles. They are designed to help respond to the challenges of the Primary Language Curriculum, include the home languages of EAL pupils in the activities of classrooms, and develop pupils’ intercultural learning.
The guidelines are produced under Languages Connect: Ireland’s Foreign Languages in Education Strategy, and are useful in the context of positive attitudes and appreciation of cultural diversity in the classroom and beyond, as well as fostering an interest and curiosity in learning further languages and intercultural communication.
