GRAD > APLING > 618

Description:
This course familiarizes students with schools of thought that frame teaching English as a second language to immigrant children, youth, and adults in the US and elsewhere. Students will explore many language teaching methods and approaches with special focus placed on Sheltered English Instruction (the mandated instructional approach for ELLs in Massachusetts and in influential model world-wide). Course readings will examine psycholinguistic, sociocultural, and historical influences on ESL and Sheltered English instruction. Students' evolving understanding of teaching and learning English as second language will contribute to awareness of why and how their decisions affect a specific teaching context and will support informed pedagogical choices.
