Twenty five percent of students in NSW come from bilingual/ bicultural backgrounds; 16% of students are at various stages of developing English as an additional language. In addition, many secondary students need support in developing literacy skills in English. This unit of study has three aims: to provide the skills and understandings for the effective teaching of ESL students; to give a background in teaching reading and writing to all students; and to develop an understanding of the impact of culture, cultural identity and diversity in schooling.
