EDU 544 Curr/Methods:ESL
This course will assist preservice educators and teachers to develop the capacity to address the differential learning and transition needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students. Understanding changes occurring in the American classroom and understanding significant factors in those changes, such as students and their families who are culturally and linguistically diverse, are goals of this course. Effective programming models are an additional understanding. In the context of these understandings, appropriate content-based instructional practices, accommodations to facilitate students’ access to the curriculum, and assessment of student learning become the main foci of this course.
