SueAnnan 2017-09-13T17:51:19 #ELTchat hello all. Who's around for tonight's offering of teacher development?
ELTchat 2017-09-13T17:52:20 In about 10 minutes join us for the 1st #ELTchat on developing literacy in L2 learners
GlenysHanson 2017-09-13T17:56:24 @SueAnnan Hi Sue, I'm here. #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-09-13T17:56:51 @GlenysHanson Hi Glenys. I think we're early tonight #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-09-13T17:57:54 @sanchiadanielle @GlenysHanson Hi. Don't forget to use the hashtag so we can see your tweets, please #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T17:58:20 #eltchat - do have a look at a previous chat summary - done a while ago https://t.co/V8fDxi9nAZ
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T17:58:22 @SueAnnan @GlenysHanson Oops! :D #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T17:59:14 A reminder to all - round about this day of September!!! #ELTchat https://t.co/phCeDlC2Up
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:02:19 @sanchiadanielle @SueAnnan @GlenysHanson Hello and welcome to  #Eltchat  - anyone else joining us tonight to talk about literacy?
SueAnnan 2017-09-13T18:03:06 Hi Marisa Mou #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:03:13 @Marisa_C @sanchiadanielle @SueAnnan @GlenysHanson Hello. I'm here. #ELTchat
GlenysHanson 2017-09-13T18:04:02 nice to see you here again, Sanchia. #ELTchat https://t.co/pGXjL7UK04
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:04:34 @KateLloyd05 @Marisa_C @SueAnnan @GlenysHanson Ugh, sorry. Hi Kate! #ELTchat :D
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:04:56 @Marisa_C @sanchiadanielle @SueAnnan @GlenysHanson Hi! #eltchat
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:05:11 @GlenysHanson Nice to have such a warm welcome back :) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:05:18 Are you interested in talking about young(er) learners or adults as well? #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:06:12 @Marisa_C Both ideally #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:06:19 @sanchiadanielle @GlenysHanson Nice post Sanchia - I loved the bit abt how yr mum having more followers upset you!!! :-D #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-09-13T18:06:22 literacy affects everyone ##ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:07:43 We haven't had low literacy adults here for quite a while, but the new wave of immigrants from war zones will sure bring them back #Eltchat
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:07:54 @Marisa_C @GlenysHanson Hahahaha thanks Marisa! Sad, but true  #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:08:32 We first experienced the need to some work with adults with low literacy in own language too #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:08:57 @Marisa_C Do you mean literacy in the L1 as well, or just in English? #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-09-13T18:09:16 Yes I have the same with my Madeiran sts. many didn't go to school #ELTchat
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:09:22 @Marisa_C It's just YLs in my context but happy to sit in on the discussion about adults too :) #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:10:50 @KateLloyd05 Well, the term 'literacy' is used widely for many diff things, L1, L2, digital, visual, etc. What shal… https://t.co/AB4APV4MM4
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:11:40 @sanchiadanielle Whatever we mention abt adult is often sourced from YL work - very little done FOR adults that is new #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:11:57 @Marisa_C Probably a good idea to define the term we are talking about today #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-09-13T18:12:48 Hello all - terrible connection but made it #ELTchat
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:13:40 @angelos_bollas Hi Angelos! Glad you made it #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-09-13T18:13:44 @Marisa_C @KateLloyd05 Quite ironic tho that most materials are for YLs and most training courses for adults #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:13:55 So shall we begin with YLs and say how some of the processes accelerated with adults? #eltchat
GlenysHanson 2017-09-13T18:14:38 @Marisa_C @KateLloyd05 In French they use two different words: illettré  and analphabète. #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:14:56 @angelos_bollas Hello #ELTchat
SueAnnan 2017-09-13T18:15:47 Going to love you and leave you. Will do the transcript on my return. Mwah. Have a great #ELTChat everyone
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:16:18 @GlenysHanson @KateLloyd05 the second word being Greek (as we learn in my big fat Greek wedding all words come from Greek :-D ) #ELTchat
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:18:03 @GlenysHanson @Marisa_C @KateLloyd05 Do they have two different meanings Glenys? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:18:26 I just checked our old summary and a lot of the resources links have died I'm afraid #eltchat
angelos_bollas 2017-09-13T18:21:15 @Marisa_C That's a pity.. but a good assignment for us ;) to find new ones :-) #eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:21:37 Am looking for some new ones #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-09-13T18:23:51 I think much hs to do with the teacher's attitude. Some Ts are unaware of literacy issues and treat SS as if they don't care #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:24:05 There are two useful sites - one for ESOL https://t.co/hXKpvYbL5e  #ELtchat and the skillwise site  https://t.co/orgTbT1myj
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:25:13 With children we would need lots of recognition and using flashcards and shapes - and lots of motor skill practise,  #eltchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:26:07 even before they begin to write , they have done lots of oral work and then begin to do tracing, coloring in, drawing #eltchat do u do this?

Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:27:10 I think it IS a confusing time, eg. sm ppl say why do handwriting when we have mobile phones now #eltchat What do u think?
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:27:10 @Marisa_C Yes. Lots of letter and then word tracing, and always the spoken form (recognised and produced) before written #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:27:17 @Marisa_C Yes we have a level just for this in our school. #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:29:00 @angelos_bollas What do u mean - they start kids with reading and writing straight away? #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:29:21 @Marisa_C Our ALs only come to school for 3-4 hours per week as it is....#eltchat
angelos_bollas 2017-09-13T18:30:04 @Marisa_C This summer I had a 20-year old student who told me "I have never used pen and paper and don't know how to do that" #eltchat

Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:32:21 @angelos_bollas @KateLloyd05 inevitably it will happen - not sure how far into the future #ELTchat
KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:32:37 @Marisa_C Interesting idea but our teachers are already teaching then! #ELTchat
angelos_bollas 2017-09-13T18:32:45 @Marisa_C @KateLloyd05 I think I like that #eltchat
GlenysHanson 2017-09-13T18:33:12 @sanchiadanielle @Marisa_C Yes, very important for Ss to understand spoken language before they R&R. #ELTchat

KateLloyd05 2017-09-13T18:35:36 @Marisa_C I think this all works better in intensive programmes that an after uni/work class #ELTchat
tesolmatthew 2017-09-13T18:38:30 @Marisa_C @angelos_bollas @KateLloyd05 so true, and it's okay. don't fight it #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:38:42 @KateLloyd05 It is an admin decision for sure but can be done if planned carefully #ELTchat
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:40:37 @Marisa_C @KateLloyd05 I wonder if a self-study course for literacy has ever been created? An audio-guided online thing perhaps? #ELTchat
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:40:38 These pages for kids have useful activities #eltchat chttp://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/en/read-write
Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:41:42 @sanchiadanielle @KateLloyd05 Not sure if done for English but have seen and used one for Modern Greek for adults  #ELTchat

sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:47:03 @angelos_bollas @Marisa_C @KateLloyd05 In my head it's a Moodle or MOOC-type platform. Assuming access to the internet, of course #ELTchat
sanchiadanielle 2017-09-13T18:48:11 @angelos_bollas @Marisa_C @KateLloyd05 Did you mean access in terms of understand/use or in terms of tech/equipment? #ELTchat

Marisa_C 2017-09-13T18:56:07 I think a school needs to create a bank of materials - a "literacy box' if you like with worksheets FCs games etc - can be online #ELTchat
