EDT 3006 - Principles of Language Acquisition


This course focuses on the principles of language acquisition and effective instructional practices for English learners. It further examines the pedagogy of educational equity to provide English learners access to the core curriculum. Foundational knowledge and classroom instructional practices are linked through the systematic study of phonemic awareness, oral language, and literacy development. Special emphasis is placed on the Structured English Immersion model as practiced in California schools. Effective instructional strategies that ensure active and equitable participation of learners who are culturally, ethnically, and socioeconomically diverse are introduced and applied through fieldwork experiences. This course requires 20 clock hours of observation and participation specific to culturally and linguistically diverse learners in a culturally diverse and inclusive school setting. Candidates are responsible for transportation to and from the school site. Task-stream registration required.
