Culture and Cultural Diversity


What is culture, and how does it affect the way we teach and learn? This course explores various definitions of culture, the impact of culture on everyday life, and the impacts on teaching and learning specifically. You will assume an anthropological view of culture as a phenomenon of learned practices, products and perspectives in a community, rather than isolating perceived cultural groups and analyzing each individually. You will analyze how culture is depicted in fiction and write a social, cultural, and historical analysis of a cultural group in California.

Instructional Design and Delivery, Introduction


Careful planning is the first step in designing a strong instructional program, but a syllabus alone is not instruction until it's "delivered" to the students. The designer's first step consists of integrating expected outcomes with knowledge of adult learning theories, learning styles, and student needs. What should the students be able to do, say or think after instruction, at what level of proficiency, and under what conditions? How will the designer create opportunities for students to experience the content, practice the skills, and achieve competence?

Teaching Grammar, Level II


All ESL students, whether they speak other Indo-European languages or languages outside the Indo-European family, bring special grammatical challenges to the learning process. Those challenges require that ESL teachers become fully aware of grammatical detail that we normally don't need to notice. Truly effective ESL teachers must learn new ways to assist students in overcoming these grammatical hurdles. Learning these new teaching patterns is the goal of this course.

Music and movement activities in the classroom can offer a creative and beneficial break from the normal routine. They can help your students develop the primary language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. A myriad of researchers have documented the fact that music provides enjoyment and assists in the development of language skills.
