This course provides an overview of the methodologies, theories and applications suggested to teach English to young second-language learners in grades K-12. A primary goal of this course requires that participants learn various applications that they can emulate and assimilate into their classrooms. Additionally, teachers will enhance their cultural insights by understanding differences and sociological factors that contribute to a successful teaching and learning experience, something that is vital to helping non-native students thrive in the classroom setting.
