ESOL 601 Strategies and Materials for Teaching Content and English Language Development to ESOL Students (Fall 2018)
This course covers the how and whys of content-learning approaches such as sheltered English, integrated language teaching, applications of language experience, whole language, and cooperative learning for second-language learners.

Course content provides grounding in the relationship between first- and second-language literacy, oral language proficiency, and culturally responsive reading comprehension. We will also explore materials, literacy teaching approaches, classroom organization, formal and alternative assessment measures, technology integration, and the alignment of curriculum models with English-language proficiency levels.

Participants will critically examine curriculum models, community resources, and content in relation to student experience.
