In partnership with the College of Education Masters in Teaching Program (MIT), Professional & Continuing Education is offering MIT students three courses to jumpstart their path towards an ELL endorsement.
SU MIT students will be able to start an ELL Endorsement while earning their Master’s degree. The remaining requirements for the ELL endorsement will be embedded within the MIT program.
Three sequenced courses will be offered over the summer quarter. Students must enroll in all three courses: Culture, Language and Community; Language, Literacy and Numeracy; and Diverse Needs for English Language Learners.
Classes are held in synchronous sessions via Zoom in the evenings, three times a week, for two hours. Additional asynchronous learning engagement is required via Canvas.
Three intensive sequence courses are offered over summer quarter 2018. If you are interested in starting your MIT ELL endorsement, please make sure you first contact your MIT academic advisor.
Please review the MIT Summer Quarter Calendar for dates and times of each course.
You will explore the ways in which language and communities intersect. Course content will include the issues confronted by English language learners and their families as well as with available community resources that promote advocacy for families. You will learn strategies that improve how you communicate with you students, parents and agencies.
When you complete this course you will understand the building blocks required for learning language, reading, and developing an understanding of numbers. Beginning strategies for instructing and assessing language development will be covered. You will learn how to plan, implement, adapt, and modify curriculum & instruction as well as how to choose the right materials for each learning activity.
You will learn how to respond to the needs of English language learners who have special learning considerations such as giftedness or learning challenges. Course content includes theories, practices and laws pertaining to identifying and supporting English language learners with learning challenges. Not knowing English sometimes seems like a disability, in this class you will know when language is not the issue.
