TESL 482 - ESOL Linguistics

Linguistics is intended to prepare teaching candidates desiring the P-12 ESOL endorsement with a background in the structure and function of language. This course will provide the theoretical underpinnings that allow candidates to better plan curriculum for their students. Candidates will be able to determine which elements of English may be most problematic for their students, the ways in which languages may differ, and what are the universal characteristics of language. This course combines aspects of applied linguistics, psychology, and second language acquisition, as well as second language pedagogy, for increased instructional competency with second language learners.
