IED 570 - Clinical Experience in ESL

This course will examine and appraise international ESL curricula and instructional approaches across all grade levels. It includes a presentation of basic ESL and general curriculum models, with reference to research-supported practices and to formative and summative assessment. The goal of this course is to provide each student with opportunities to make contact with and to implement a broad variety of ESL theories, curricular designs, and successful practices. Coursework will deal with matching specific theories of ESL curriculum development to present practice as found both in the literature and in rich professional experiences available among the course participants. Activities, content, and materials are focused on international curricula, as found in the K-12 international schools in which ESL practitioners from this program will likely work.
