Teachers will connect principles of language identity, usage, and acquisition with a second language learner.
Assessment: 25 pts.
TA: 30 Minutes
Teachers can learn more about their students by practicing how to study a student, consider their supports and constraints, determine changes that will increase a student’s learning. The student studied here is presented to all students in common so they can work together to improve their skills.
Students have had their first exposure to key concepts in second language acquisition (Communication, Pattern, and Variability) that will be revisited throughout the course. Using previous knowledge of cognitive, social/affective, and linguistic issues of development, they deepen their understanding of these critical learning domains and connect new learning to actual second language learners.
