EECLD 6007 Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages: Literacy and Literature

This is a hands-on course dedicated to using outcome-based TESOL standards in multilingual/multicultural context for teaching reading, writing, and spelling in English to CLD students who are at different levels of English proficiency. Teachers acquire, evaluate, adapt, and develop materials that are responsive to the language proficiency level and cultural diversity of students in a classroom that fosters critical thinking skills and respect for all. Participants are expected to read, evaluate, and use a variety of K-8 children's literature and to learn to continuously assess and adjust their own language usage in the classroom in order to maximize student comprehension and verbal participation.
