TESL 501 - Second Language Teaching and Learning

(3 credits)
This course is designed to address the current PreK-12 curricular standards for English language learners (ELLs) in Massachusetts. It will provide an introduction to teaching and learning a second language in PreK-12 classroom settings. Participants will explore instructional approaches to second language learning and the theories and models behind them. They will investigate the emotional, social and intellectual implications of the process of learning a second language and consider learner variables such as age, English proficiency and student home culture in planning culturally responsive instruction for second language learners in a cross-cultural setting.
