Welcome to BC TEAL. We hope this website provides a central meeting place and on-line community for EAL professionals throughout BC. Our goal is to advance the profession of teaching English as an additional language by facilitating professional development for all of our members.
The BC TEAL Journal is a peer-reviewed open access publication of the Association of BC Teachers of English as an Additional Language (BC TEAL). The journal exists to promote scholarship related to the teaching and learning of English as an Additional Language (EAL) in British Columbia, with articles explicitly reflecting the varying contexts and settings of the BC TEAL membership. The publication is available freely online at: http://ejournals.ok.ubc.ca/index.php/BCTJ
The BC TEAL Journal invites your submissions.
The first issue will be published in the late Fall 2015.
The BC TEAL newsletter is available 3 times a year through the BC TEAL website.
Our next TEAL NEWS will be published in the fall.
The 2015 TCF Climb for the Cause – Grouse Grind will take place on Sunday, September 13th at 10 am. Our goal is to raise funds for the new Taiga Galli Memorial Refugee Award. This award will be an endowment fund and will provide an annual scholarship of up to $2500 for a young refugee wishing to study at a post-secondary institution in British Columbia.
Plan to take part! This year is the first time you can choose to Climb, Cycle or Walk the Grouse Grind. If you are unable to join us on September 13th, please consider showing your support by donating or making a pledge for one of the climbers, cyclists or walkers.
