ELL pre-service teacher training: MA/TESL and SOE partnership
from By Mary Martha Savage
The growing numbers of ELLs in schools today is paramount to schools of education as they face the challenge of training future teachers. In already-packed programs, the task of incorporating state and federal requirements of cultural competency coursework is daunting. SOEs are charged to respond with authentic and responsive ELL instruction while at the same time maintaining timely graduation rates. Embedded in this challenge is the need for ELL expertise and culturally appropriate resources to provide authentic field experiences and placements.
