Second Language Acquisition (SLA) and Educational Technology
In this course we will study the relationship between second language acquisition (SLA) theory, foreign language (FL) instruction, and the use of educational technology. We will examine various aspects of first and second language learning/acquisition. SLA theories and research findings will then provide a framework to explore FL instruction and computer assisted learning (CALL) applications. Based on an experiential project development approach, this course will offer students opportunities to critically assess existing CALL applications and to design learning materials based on SLA current and relevant research. Class sessions are designed to be hands-on and interactive. (Not open to students who have taken LNGT/EDST 1004) 3 hrs. lect./disc.

Models of Inclusive Education

Models of Inclusive Education
In this course we will focus on strategies and techniques for including students with diverse learning styles in general education environments. Legal, theoretical, philosophical, and programmatic changes leading toward inclusive models of education will be approached through a historical overview of special education for students with disabilities. Additionally, the course works to expand notions of inclusion such that students' multiple identities are incorporated into all learning. Emphasis is given to the active learning models and differentiated curriculum and instruction to accommodate a range of learners with diverse disabilities, abilities, and identities.

Elem. Literacy & Soc. Studies

Teaching of Literacy and Social Studies in the Elementary School

In addition to the classes, students will participate in a field experience of observing and helping out in elementary school classes in the Middlebury area (approximately 24 hours) and design an individual education studies website. The course will view literacy development (reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing) in such a way that assessing and planning instruction fits naturally into everyday classroom activities. We will explore a variety of topics and issues related to social studies: Vermont and National Standards, interdisciplinary approaches, and assessment. 3 hrs. lect./1 hr. disc.

We will also consider the politics of literacy and the importance of socio-economic, linguistic, and cultural factors in making appropriate choices about methods and materials for diverse populations.
