Choose one learning area in reading or listening comprehension about your EALD learners to observe ? Compare your observations with the learning outcomes stated in the ACARA document. This is the learning gap (of your learners) You may attach your observations in your appendix (optional) Write the following: (about 200 words) ? State the learning objectives of your reading or listening comprehension activity ? Explain the learning gap by referring to the expected learning outcomes according to ACARA for your group of EALD learners and their actual performance level.
