P233-7701.1S19 - Linguistics for Teachers of ELLs

Course Details
Course Description: This course "“ Linguistics for Teachers of Emergent Bilinguals "“ aims to teach teachers about the fundamentals of linguistic knowledge, how a speaker of another language acquires English as a new language, and how to use this knowledge to improve outcomes for emergent bilinguals. We will cover the components of phonology, vocabulary knowledge, syntax, morphology, and pragmatic/conceptual knowledge. We will study how acquisition of oral English progresses from entering or emerging levels to transitioning and commanding levels, and its relationship to the acquisition of literacy "“ reading and writing. In addition, we will study the differences between general oral proficiency and the unique characteristics of academic language. Students in the course will learn specific research-based strategies and scaffolding techniques that maximize language and literacy acquisition, including building up background schema around a topic through visuals and kinesthetic prompts, oral reading and partnered reading, and writing instruction.
