TESL 511 - Innovative Approaches to Bilingual Teaching

(3 credits) Cross Listed with LANG 511
Prerequisite: LASP 281 and LASP 300; or equivalent courses in another non-English partner language; or consent of program chairperson
Through this course, students explore content-area reading and writing in English and a non-English partner language. They conduct a contrastive analysis of the two languages and then apply that knowledge to practices and approaches for teaching reading and writing to speakers of English and speakers of other languages. This course provides students with insight into culturally relevant strategies for integrating reading and writing across content areas using the two languages. Students will also have the opportunity to undertake a student teaching engagement, practice bilingual teaching strategies and make modifications for different contexts. Repeatable: may earn a maximum of six credits. Offered annually.
