ARBC 6691 - Teaching Arbc for Proficiency
New findings of second language acquisition research have implications for teaching methodologies which are in turn reflected in how professional organizations set the goals and parameters for learning a foreign language. The new guidelines for Arabic, developed by the American Council for Teaching Foreign Languages in 2012, define such parameters for Arabic as a foreign language. This course offers a practicum where students explore these guidelines in depth and investigate their translation into actual lessons and teaching tools with the goal of ensuring that all teaching and learning activities enable the learner's to become proficient in Arabic.Pedagogy
