EEC110: Academic English for English Learners in Math and Science

This course provides Math and Science teachers at the Middle/High School level with a deeper understanding of how to identify, analyze and develop academic language for ELLs using WIDA and other tools. Teachers will be able to apply practiced strategies to their teaching context taking into account the four language domains (listening, speaking, reading and writing) and their students' English proficiency levels. Teachers will work collaboratively with model texts, state model curriculum units and their own lessons to gain expertise in the unique features of the language of Math/Science to increase content comprehension and develop academic language and literacy skills.
