English as an Additional (EAL) learners benefit from language learning through content instruction. The first step for teachers is to identify the key language associated with the curriculum. This can be a daunting and time-consuming task for teachers of all grade levels, and they often wonder why the language has not already been identified. This collaborative working group will design a template to document the key language of the learning outcomes for each subject-specific topic, and harvest the language from the new curriculum. The goal of this collaborative is to create a companion resource to the new curriculum which identifies key language aligned to the English proficiency levels of Benchmarks 2.0. This resource will support teachers in designing learning tasks that include language instruction embedded meaningfully into content instruction. Upon completion, this resource will be made available to Alberta teachers.
