EDEC 321 Curriculum and Instruction for English Language Learners

Designed to provide teacher candidates with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and insights, to effectively organize and implement instruction for English Language Learners (ELLs) in pre-K-3 grade levels. Students will learn about language acquisition and explore practical strategies in curriculum and instruction for English Language Learners. They will apply principles of developmentally appropriate practice in the context of educating dual language learners.   In accordance with CT law, districts may require criminal background and/or DCF child abuse and neglect registry checks to participate in the field experiences in this class.  Students are required to follow the background check policies of the district in which they are placed and are responsible for all associated fees.  CCSU is not responsible for district policies.
