The Senri & Osaka International Schools of Kwansei Gakuin will be hosting Literacy for learning: International edition tutor training program on October 31 – November 3, 2016. The program is produced by the Department of Education and Child Development (DECD) in Adelaide, Australia and is one of a suite of professional development programs developed by DECD under the name, Unlocking the World: Professional Development for Teachers.
You may be familiar with the Teaching ESL Students in the Mainstream course (TESMC) also developed by DECD. The Literacy for Learning (LfL) course is similar to TESMC, without any ESL references, contains many new texts and activities and is focused on literacy. It is 7 hours shorter and while TESMC is for teachers new to working with ESL students, LfL is for teachers who are very familiar with working with ESL students and their needs.
