Learning & Teaching
We are a community of educators, dedicated to helping improve the educational outcomes for learners of English as an additional language or dialect (EAL/D) and promoting multilingualism.
ATESOL NSW works to support EAL/D learners to access the curriculum and for inclusive meaningful learning experiences. We are committed to providing quality professional learning opportunities, which help develop effective pedagogy so that all teachers can support their EAL/D students’ academic, social and well-being learning needs.
The English (EAL/D) Trial HSC Exam package is created by qualified and experienced HSC English (EAL/D) teachers and exam markers, some of whom are regular presenters at ETA Student Days.
AVAILABLE in Term 3: Week 9 – 23rd June, 2023.
The package includes:
a digital version of Papers 1 & 2 and the Listening Paper (pdf as well as Microsoft Word format for easy editing)
quality selection of unseen texts and questions based on syllabus outcomes
comprehensive marking criteria and sample answers
Listening Paper audio file (mp3 format)
