Section 1: Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30-1:45 PM
Professor: Lynne Stallings
The aim of this course is to prepare students not only to understand and recognize, but to also address, the language acquisition challenges of non-native English speakers, both in the U.S. and abroad. Students will consider a) the methods that have been used historically in the field and b) the post-method approach that often guides current practices in ESL and EFL settings. Students will apply this information along with what they know about second language acquisition theories to develop their own principle-based approach to teaching ESL and EFL.
