EDHM 336 - Foundations in Sheltered English Immersion: The Education and Assessment of Diverse Populations

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: EDHM 210 and EDHM 235 and admission to the Professional Education Program. EDHM 336 may be taken with one other secondary education course in the program. To emphasize, no more than two secondary education courses may be taken in any one semester. Any override must be signed by the chairperson of Secondary Education.
This course addresses current educational and legal requirements for serving English Language Learners (ELLs) and other diverse learners in P-12 school settings. Topics include research-based protocols, methods and strategies to integrate subject area content for teaching children and adolescents in the process of acquiring proficiency in a second language. Focus is on Sheltered English Instruction (SEI); however, comparison and evaluation of various types of language education models, such as English as a Second Language (ESL) and bilingual instruction, are included. The data and policies relevant to diverse linguistically and culturally diverse populations will be examined. Candidates will continue to develop their professional portfolios. This course meets a Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education requirement that leads to SEI endorsement for initial teaching license and/or administrative licensure. This course requires 20 hours of field experience in appropriate settings.
