EDIS 547 - ESL Assessment and Curriculum Design


The purpose of this course is to prepare teachers to work with students (K-12) for whom English is not their native language. Work will include examining instruments used to assess English proficiency and the interpretation of those assessments. The curriculum design aspect of the course will be based on a differentiation model and will include methods aimed at helping students gain English language skills necessary for success in general content areas. Discussions will include topics such as cultural differences in personal interactions, strategies for working with families, and effective strategies for facilitating the learning of English by speakers of other languages and dialects. Practical experience will be gained through observations and fieldwork in public schools. Projects will be assigned according to the age-level with which the teacher hopes to work. (Y)
