As the number of English learners (ELs) increase in K-12 schools, teachers need to learn how to address their linguistic and cultural needs. This course will introduce the principles of language and culture that teachers need to know when working with ELs as well as critical reflection skills that benefit teachers throughout their career. Questions addressed will include: What is the nature of language? How is a second language learned? What is the relationship between language, culture, and the language learner? Within this course students will begin the process of researching and generating the final project(s) for the MAT degree and will learn the skills necessary to complete these tasks successfully.
