    ESL teacher - The role of an EAL/D teacher may be multifaceted and thus not be clearly understood in your school. This is mainly because the role needs to be linked to the context of the school and this will vary from school to school.
    for example:
    If you have many new arrivals with little English you may see your role as withdrawing students to provide survival English language and literacy support using a program that is individualised for their needs.
    If you have many more students in mainstream classrooms who have spoken English but appear to struggle with academic reading and writing, you may see your role as collaboratively programming and teaching in the mainstream classroom using the syllabus content as your English base creating an integrated program that links content area learning with English language learning.
    It is important to note that withdrawing students from their mainstream classroom is helpful in the initial stages of learning English but ultimately EAL/D students to learn Academic English best through integrated content area instruction with their peers while in the mainstream classroom supported by an EAL/D teacher using language and literacy strategies all the students can do. This is an inclusive curriculum approach and provides class teachers with an important opportunity to engage in professional learning on the support of their EAL/D students.
