"I only wish I knew decades ago what I know now." says Annette Millar.After 40 plus years of teaching mainly Indigenous students in a range of situations across Australia, Annette has been inspired to share what she 'knows now', through this manual. She has documented successful strategies for teaching Standard Australian English (SAE) literacy skills to students who come to school speaking Aboriginal English or Kriol.By working through the EAL/D Literacy Cycles that Annette has developed, students can become successful in SAE speaking, reading and writing. To competently use these skills is often so elusive, but very necessary, for those wanting to go on to further education and employment.All teachers working in an Indigenous EAL/D educational setting will glean important information and ideas from this manual.
