Capstone Project Title
Implementing Phenomenon Based Learning Into English Language Development Curriculum
Kaitlin Schwab and Meagan Bridges
Finland has one of the most successful education systems in the world, and a significant reason behind that is their utilization of Phenomenon-Based Learning. Students work together to solve real-world problems in project-based learning units, while using language to problem solve alongside their peers. This capstone answers the question, How can a professional development workshop be created that teaches educators in the United States how to build an English Language Development curriculum that is centered around PhenoBL and language domain incorporation while being as culturally inclusive and responsive as possible? Collectively, these pillars of instruction promote a learning environment that fosters daily academic and social language acquisition practice for emerging bilingual students.
