EDUC 6708 - Literacy Development in a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Classroom♦


(3 sem. cr.) Today’s classrooms reflect the rich cultural and linguistic diversity of the world outside of school. Through this course, education professionals work toward establishing a culturally responsive classroom where literacy development can flourish for all  students. Education professionals learn and apply strategies to scaffold and support English-language learners at all levels of language acquisition. They examine the second-language acquisition process and methods to assess second-language and literacy proficiencies. Additionally, they learn to select culturally sensitive and relevant instructional materials and work with parents, community members, and other colleagues to support student success.
