Ideas for using this resource

The diagrams illustrate the progress of hypothetical students in learning English language in Australia.

They can be used to further understand the factors impacting on an individual student's learning and to inform discussions about the value of sociolinguistic profiles in developing appropriate teaching and learning programs and pathways for EAL students.

Five of the diagrams are similar to samples provided on the VCAA website (https://www.vcaa.vic.edu.au/Documents/viccurric/eal/EAL-curriculum-resources-sample-progressions.pdf).
