Teachers need tools to help English learners develop academic literacy. Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) is the key to unlock the way language works. SFL differs from traditional grammar by focusing on the linguistic choices used to construct meaning in written and spoken language, rather than on rules. This workshop outlines the key concepts of SFL and provides practical classroom applications to enable English Learners to make sense of complex text as they develop academic language.
