Teachers will develop a better understanding of social and cultural factors influencing EL students, the stages of second language acquisition, as well as developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive approaches to teaching and supporting ELs. This course will specifically address instructional planning and assessment, the relationship between speech and print, word identification and vocabulary, reading and writing practices, and content-area reading/writing technology connections.
