The deadline to register for English Language Learners, Families, Community, and Professionalism is January 24, 2019.
This course is part of the ESL Certification Program you must be accepted into the program to take this course.
This course is the sixth and final course for obtaining ESL certification.
This course is geared toward equipping ESL teachers with the necessary tools to give ESL students the support they need while they undergo the challenges of transition. Issues that may arise concerning the support of students in the classroom, school and the community will be addressed. Professionalism is regarded as a key domain for second language teacher educators. Not only do ESL teachers need to establish themselves as highly qualified experts in their field, they must serve as sources of knowledge about current language policy. To advocate for the profession and their students, ESL teachers must be able to take full advantage of professional resources and relationships at local, regional, and national levels.
Along with weekly readings in the book and their corresponding tasks and assignments, participants will also complete 10 hours of field based assessments.
Participants must have a working knowledge of computers and Internet use, high speed Internet access, and a working email account for the duration of the course.
