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

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: EDHM 335, which may be taken concurrently
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. 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. Includes 20 hours of required field observation.
