NACELL best practice guide
The Early Language Learning initiative
Since 1999, the Centre for Information on Language Teaching and Research (CILT) has managed a project, funded by the DfES, to promote and develop early language learning (ELL). This project involves a considerable amount of work with schools and local education authorities, as well as all the national agencies which have an interest in ELL.
As part of the development and dissemination of successful practice, CILT set up a Good Practice Project in 1999, involving eighteen partners in a range of schools and settings. Since September 2001, the Development of Early Language Learning Project, also managed by CILT, has been continuing this action research, firmly rooted in current classroom practice.
best practice guide
CILT's work with schools and LEAs has provided useful information about different models of provision, as well as numerous examples of best practice in planning, teaching and learning. The NACELL best practice guide brings together possible curriculum models and a selection of examples in the form of case studies, guidance and schemes of work.
The materials in this guide represent only a small sample of some of the work currently going on around the country. They have become available thanks to the very generous support and hard work of many individual teachers, schools and local education authorities across the country, who have agreed to share their work.
