literacy education

Given the increasing number of students for whom English is not their first language and the impact of language acquisition on the ability of students to benefit from classroom learning opportunities, potential teachers need a solid understanding of language acquisition and its impact on learning. This class will focus on the processes, principles, and factors, as well as the similarities and differences of first and second language acquisition.  Focus will also be contextualized to classroom teaching and specific teaching practices that accommodate differing stages of language acquisition.
