In many classrooms there will be pupils who do not speak the language of the local community or the language of the classroom. These two dramas illustrate the importance for teachers in both using language with their pupils that is appropriate to pupils' level of understanding and checking pupils' understanding of instructions. The clips in this album are designed to be used to support the development of teachers' classroom practice in both formal and non formal learning situations. This material is from the TESSA (Teacher Education in Sub Saharan Africa) initiative.
