The Effective Schools Model was initially developed by Sammons et al. (1995)  and has been widely used and adapted by school systems for school improvement. This model can be used to understand how a Language Support Program can facilitate the effective teaching and support of students with language difficulties, as well as enhancing the learning of all students.
Note: The material in Module 5.1 is adapted from Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, ‘English domain – Characteristics of effective schools’.
