ED 423 Multilingual and Multicultural Assessment


This course focuses specifically on the academic language needed for English language learners (ELLs) to be successful in U.S. schools. Students utilize a “pedagogy of multiliteracies” and the “continua of biliteracy” perspective to imagine curricula and pedagogy for their students. The course also emphasizes the connections between in-school and out-of-school literacies. In addition, students spend time investigating reading and writing standards and curricula and the ways that materials might be adapted for ELLs and ELLs with disabilities. Students either tutor ELLs or demonstrate a literacy activity for classmates.

Field experiences required.  See background check requirement policy.

Corequisite: ED 416
