Abstract

This Practical Strategies section focuses on classroom strategies and practices that a group of teachers used in their classrooms to engage ‘new’ and mobile students in learning and in literacy learning in particular. Some of the strategies relate to creating a welcoming environment for new students and establishing some initial social support to ease students through the transition into a new school. Other strategies consider the academic support that is required and the importance of teachers finding out about their students’ learning needs as quickly as possible.
