EDUC - 275. Teaching English to Nonnative Speakers


3 credit(s)
Teaching English to Nonnative Speakers 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, the course will give students a brief introduction to current New York State English as a New Language (ENL) Standards. Through a twenty-hour fieldwork component, 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. The twenty-hour field experience component includes observation of experienced ENL educators and developing, planning, and teaching lessons for recent newcomers to the United States. 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 social justice-focused work including film, readings, guest lectures, and a field experience in classrooms with high immigrant and refugee student populations. Thus, they will both instruct and learn from refugees as well as experts in the field of refugee resettlement.
