ELL Literacy Development

WRCT 207
Fall 2022
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: EDST 307
Course Cluster and Certificates: Community-Engaged Learning, Service Learning

In 2021, in the state of Connecticut, approximately 14% of the K-12 population were English Language Learners (ELL) (https://portal.ct.gov/-/media/SDE/Performance/Research-Library/EL-DEMOGRAPHICS-10012020.pdf). This growing population includes students whose written languages vary considerably from English, students whose education has been interrupted due to the chaos of war and resettlement in the U.S., and students who have undiagnosed learning disabilities. This service-learning course focuses on an area of great need for this population -- English literacy. This course will offer students an opportunity to tutor ELLs for 20 hours during the semester while studying and applying the theories and best practices of ELL literacy development. In addition, this course will discuss best practices for teaching math to ELLs, lesson planning, classroom management, and other necessary skills for successful teachers in any field.
