Constructing Books in EAL 

HSThe Bridging EAL students have been working on constructing an academic text book chapter for the students’ chosen topic of ‘How to Spend Money Effectively’.

The class utilised a textbook used for VCE Accounting to construct a chapter using a similar structure and language features.

The students were required to write a page covering their sub-topics, including devising review questions and exercises for the back of our chapter.

This activity was designed to enhance students’ knowledge and utilisation of academic language by collaborating as a class to create a text of which they can be proud.
