This course has two purposes: (1) to focus on
teaching applications in grades PreK-12/adult settings, and (2) to meet Washington state and
TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) endorsement
standards for teacher preparation. Linguistics & Literacy Development
offers an introduction to language as a system, with a focus on teaching
English as a second language to students in grades PreK-12 and adults. Among
the topics addressed are English phonology, morphology, and syntax. In this
course, we examine the development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing
skills in the domains of functional, academic and critical literacies.
Strategies for teaching grammar such as verb tenses, articles, possessives and
prepositions will also be explored. Because language and literacy are the
foundation of students' academic achievement, this course focuses on teachers'
curriculum design and the selection of language methods for students with
various levels of English proficiency.
