ELL 565 - Supporting ELLs Across the Content Areas for P-12 Teachers


An expansion on theoretical and practical concerns in teaching English as an additional language to students in grades P-12 with intermediate to advanced proficiency in English. Emphasis is on innovative approaches to the teaching of language and literacy within a communicative framework and academic register. Provides guidance in the evaluation, development, and use of creative materials, including media-based materials. Requires teaching in a classroom with English language learners. This course will offer teachers methods and strategies to refine communication abilities across multiple settings while focusing primarily on academic language, literacy and identity development taught through engaging and relevant content. We will build on the techniques introduced in ELL 464/564 but shift the emphasis to elements of academic language; specifically vocabulary, form, function, and fluency of language across domains of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Prerequisites & Notes: Admitted to the ESLT program; ELL 564 or ELL 464.
