Using Persuasive Strategies

This week our wonderful EAP students will be learning how to use and incorporate persuasive strategies into their work. After analyzing how to use such strategies as logos, pathos, ethos and kairos, students will then be given the opportunity to create their own multimedia advertisement, encouraging people to visit their home country.

The following film on visiting Great Britain is an example of what their finished product might look like.

 

Fountas and Pinnell Reading Assessments

f&p

This week our wonderful EAP students have once again begun completing their latest Fountas and Pinnell reading assessments. These reading tests will be on-going for some time and they will provide useful data pinpointing each child’s current reading level, together with the progress they have made. In addition, the assessments provide us with useful data on the exact challenges which students face when reading aloud and how well they are able to analyze the content of a text.

Student Led Conferences

Many thanks to all of our wonderful EAP students and their parents for making Student Led Conferences such a huge success yesterday. Everybody clearly enjoyed looking back at a productive year of learning and a selection of excerpts from the conversations that took place can be seen in the above movie. Happy viewing!
