This course focuses on the analysis of topics on teaching English as a second language through the content areas. Topics include theories and frameworks which explain the relationship between content teaching, cognition and language learning. Emphasis is given to instructional strategies used to teach ESL through mathematics, science and social studies to LEP students. Students complete a unit with lesson plans that include objectives and hands-on-activities designed to teach and assess English acquisition and content learning. A field-based project about teaching ESL integrated with a content area and based on both, a NYS content area curriculum and the Regents Learning Standards, is also required.
