EDUC - 275. TESOL Methodology


3 credit(s)
TESOL is designed to equip pre-service teachers with the theoretical background and strategies for successfully teaching English to those who speak languages other than English in their homes. Additionally, TESOL will give students a brief introduction to current New York State ESOL Standards. Through in-depth readings, classroom discussions, and presentations, students will begin to master the body of knowledge relevant to teaching English Language Learners (ELLs) in New York State. A field experience component including observation of experienced ESOL educators and developing, planning, and teaching lessons to recent newcomers to the United States will help students develop successful classroom strategies and practices. To help facilitate community in ELL classrooms, as well as to promote deeper appreciation for human diversity, this course also includes an in-depth look at the US refugee experience, particularly as it relates to English Language education and cultural understanding. Students will participate in a Cross-Cultural Solidarity Experience (CCSE) to include film, readings, guest lectures, and a field experience in inner-city classrooms with high refugee student populations. Thus, they will both instruct and learn from refugees as well as experts in the field of refugee resettlement.
