TSL 620 - Language and Literacy Development for English Language Learners

This course examines the interdependent development of language and literacy skills by students from other language backgrounds who are acquiring English. Course focuses on methods, materials and assessment criteria for reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Print, technology, and other materials appropriate for use with linguistically, academically, and culturally diverse students assist in developing integrated approaches to meeting standards in content area literacy and language development.
