EECLD 6107 Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages: Literacy and Literature (5-12)

This course is dedicated to using outcome-based TESOL standards for teaching academic literacy: reading, writing, and spoken language in the content areas to linguistically diverse students. Multicultural literature and current research on literacy instruction for adolescent English learners, including students with interrupted formal education, are analyzed. Teachers evaluate, adapt, and develop language-based content instruction to provide high challenge and support in secondary content classrooms that foster literacy development, critical thinking skills, and respect for all.
