ENGL 413A English Language Arts Professional Seminar


Prerequisites: Admission to Professional Education Program and Admission to English Program, or instructor consent.
Teacher candidates create instructional strategies responsive to diverse students’ community and school context-based needs, and designed to explore social justice issues implicit in young adult literature and inherent in situations involving negotiation of linguistically diverse communication patterns.  Under the supervision of a mentor teacher in their school-based early field experience, candidates collaboratively plan and implement research-based, standards-aligned ELA instruction and assessment strategies designed to promote active engagement of all learners.  Candidates plan and video record book talks on selected young adult books for viewing by students at their early-field experience school.  In preparation for their ongoing professional growth as teacher-researchers, candidates investigate the benefits of active membership in ELA professional organizations, including opportunities for sharing their research at conferences and in the publications of these organizations.

A 25 hour school-based experience is required.

Term Offered: (S)
Note: A prerequiste for ENGL 414/415
