ED6106Literacy Instruction in Bilingual and Multilingual Contexts3 ch
This course will examine the critical role of literacy in the second or additional language classroom. This analysis will be guided by theories and principles of multiliteracies and multilingualism as well as their related pedagogies. After establishing the underlying theories, we will explore practices that promote the development of speaking, listening, reading and writing for second or additional language learners. We will examine the elements to be taught for each skill, teaching techniques, and the sequence of instruction. Also, ways to release the teacher for individual or small-group pedagogical interventions will be discussed.Prerequisites: None
