B407 – Methods and Materials for Teaching New Language Learners II: Reflective Practice

2 Credit Hours

This yearlong reflective practice seminar will give teachers
the opportunity to examine their ongoing classroom practice
during the course of a school year. Students engage in a systematic
examination of their frameworks of knowledge; the
relationship between students, content, and subject matters;
the interconnections of culture, language, and home-school
relationships; and themselves as teachers. This reflective
process is conducted in a collaborative and interactive manner
that focuses on actual practice and allows for the interplay
of inquiry and experience. The seminar will meet twice
a month in a small group format that fosters open discussion
and the examination of issues.
