Working with Emergent Bilingual Learners

Based on the belief that language is an essential foundation for the learning that takes place in formal and informal education, participants will examine the political, educational, social, and emotional aspects that determine the stratification of languages and language variations. The course analyzes ways in which Emergent Bilingual students (also known as ELLs) learn English as a new language and provides strategies that teachers can use to help them learn the language to fully integrate into general and special education classrooms.
