EDUC 6726 - Understanding the English Language Learner♦


(3 sem. cr.) In this course, education professionals gain a historical and cultural perspective of K–12 English-language learners. They explore concepts, theories, research, and first and second language acquisition differences to understand and teach this diverse group of  students. Education professionals also examine their own attitudes, beliefs, and biases and learn the importance of developing culturally responsive learning environments. They also learn the value of working collaboratively with families and school staff to support the needs of all students in the general classroom.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
