HW 1.1: Reflect and Implement


Learning Outcome Pedagogical Intent Student Position

Teachers learn knowledge and skills to construct learning environments that support development of English language proficiency: Literacy, academic, and cognitive development.

Assessment: 50 pts.

Due: Session 2

Teachers can become self-aware as they reflect on and apply learnings from session activities and set goals for future change in their usual practice with English Language learners.

Students reflect on their work to change and improve their classroom instruction as part of this course. Reflection helps teachers understand how to teach English Language learners.
