(ED 4560)

Students examine the recent findings of linguists, psycholinguists, sociolinguists, cognitive psychologists and educational theorists in curriculum and motivation relative to second language learning. The student appraises methods of foreign language teaching at K-12 level as they relate to proficiency in listening, reading, writing and speaking, and critically analyzes existing methods and gives rationale for selection of a preferred method. Additionally, the student works with a practicing professional at a school site. This course requires a non-credit field placement experience. The graduate-level course requires independent accelerated additional coursework appropriate for the graduate level.
