This four-course, graduate certificate program provides effective strategies for: teaching English as a Second Language (ESL); making content accessible to English Language Learners (ELLs); and creating collaborative, culturally responsive learning environments. Coursework explores language acquisition theory and research as well as language-learning programs such as dual language immersion, transitional bilingual education, and structured English immersion. Participants learn practical methods for integrating content and literacy objectives to help K–12 students master both subject matter and English listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Courses also introduce a variety of assessment tools and interpretative techniques for evaluating language proficiency and guiding instructional approaches.
