ED625/Lecture/OP1 - ESL: Language, Diversity and Schooling | Credits 3.00
This course focuses on the ways that U.S. schools have addressed linguistic diversity, highlighting current policies and program models as well as practices at various points in our history. It also looks at the ways that linguistic diversity is portrayed in the media, the 'funds of knowledge' that linguistically diverse families bring with them to school as well as cross-cultural perspectives on education, home/school relationships and disabilities. Notions of linguistic power and discrimination are addressed, particularly in relation to local, national, and international language policy and use. Finally, in this course students analyze the potential of multicultural education curricula for addressing these types of issues in U.S. schools. This course includes a service-learning component where students do community service in an agency that addresses the needs of a local immigrant group or groups.
