LYST 213A - Introduction to Bilingual and Biliteracy Instruction for ESL Teachers
Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring, Summer
This course explores the cultural, linguistic, political and pedagogical aspects involved in the process of developing school literacies in bi/multilingual and multicultural classrooms. Literacy development is discussed within the perspective of supporting learners to use biliteracy as a tool to understand, to extend, and to act upon their worlds. Topics include the relationships between oral and written language processes in bilingual/biliterate students and the interaction between languages during literacy and language learning. This course examines the literate pedagogical needs and assessment procedures of bilingual/biliterate learners within general and special education contexts. All theoretical explorations are nested in the learning processes of individuals with bicultural literacy experiences, including students who are considered to have special education needs. This course involves a 30-hour field experience.
