ED629/Lecture/OP1 - Theory and Practice of TESOL | Credits 3.00
This course is the final course of the 5-course sequence for the ESL Program Specialist Certificate in the State of Pennsylvania. All students who receive the ESL Program Specialist Certificate must first obtain Instructional I Certification. This course should be taken in the last semester of a student’s ESL certificate program. The course offers a chance for students to synthesize their learning about ELLs, to fine tune a philosophy of education for English Language Learners, and to plan and implement lessons that are differentiated, integrated across language skills and content areas, and that include meaningful assessment. Meaningful collaboration with other educational professionals, advocacy and a deep understanding of current local, state and federal mandates regarding the education of English Language Learners are also a critical component of this culminating course. As in all ESL Program Specialist courses, there is a minimum of 12 hours of fieldwork. In this course, there is a formal observation of students’ teaching of English Language Learners. Co-requisites: ED 622, ED 623, ED 624, and/or ED 625
