EDUC 2620 - Language Learning and Teaching

Credits: 3

[Previously offered as: EDUC 260] In this course, participants explore how first and second languages are learned. Through a linguistic lens, participants compare first and second language acquisition traits. In doing so, participants uncover the fundamental principles of language learning, the factors that influence language acquisition, and practical classroom applications of this knowledge. Participants study the evolution of language teaching methodologies, identify effective language teaching strategies and techniques, and determine how to use them in their specific contexts. Additionally, participants direct this knowledge to understand the population of students served in the state of New Mexico and to create a classroom that supports the success of the English Language Learner (ELL).

Offered: Fall.
Three lecture hours.
