MLL 7405 Teaching Literacy for ELLs

The relationship of literacy skill (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) development and the second language acquisition process is examined. Social and cultural language differences, second language acquisition, developmental stages, metacognitive theory, research-based theory, instructional implications, and practical classroom applications will be emphasized. The process by which the aforementioned factors elucidate and strengthen ELLs’ second language literacy development is linked to instruction. Action research and study of an ELL’s language and literacy development is required in a K-12 setting.
