EDL 609 Methods Across the Content Areas in Bilingual Education(GNA)

3 hours; 3 credits. Focuses on the study, analysis, application, and creation of appropriate classroom instructional strategies to teach content areas in English and languages other than English. Students develop skills to examine, evaluate, and create instructional materials to teach mathematics, science, social studies, and other content areas in the first and second language in a bilingual-multilingual classroom. Prospective bilingual teachers will examine interdisciplinary content skills, and specific language-related skills on how to use available materials and resources (i.e., standard glossaries and curriculum guides) when planning and integrating content-area learning experiences and/or interdisciplinary thematic units, using both English and one native language. Pre- or corequisites: EDL 601, EDL 602.
