Using Blended Learning for EAL Interventions With Elementary/Primary Students


This paper puts forward a case for the use of blended learning as a form of pull-out intervention, specifically for EAL (English as an Additional Language) elementary students who need to rapidly catch up on basic interpersonal communication skills. Practical suggestions are provided. This approach is based on both quantitative and qualitative data from a 2020 study which explored best practice in EAL interventions for students who were progressing to the elementary stage of education. Beyond this, research and literature backed, best practice approaches to EAL interventions and online learning are considered. Finally, teacher interviews were conducted for the purpose of checking the practitioner perspective on the validity of this approach in the current educational climate. The limitations of this paper, as well as consideration for future study of this topic, are provided.
