EDUC 428. Intro to A2LP II Spanish

Credits: 1-10

This is the second semester A2LP course and is the second half of a year-long experience. This course is exactly the same as EDUC 426 but is intended for second semester A2LP students who are eligible to take the course for upper level Spanish credit that is recognized by the Romance Languages Department. The purpose of this course is to extend the initial learning that was established in EDUC 425: to build a community of practice and help students develop the necessary building blocks for successful elementary Spanish instruction. The A2LP seminar presents pedagogy and methodology around language and prepares the students to implement pre-designed lesson plans. The seminar is designed to help students understand basic professional practices that enable them to manage problems inherent to the interpersonal and relational nature of the work of teaching. The goal of learning in seminar is to help students to be proactive in behavior management, building relationships with students, and responsiveness to student learning. Across each semester they will learn to construct a "teacher persona" by developing and practicing ways of acting and speaking imperative for effective teaching. They will learn to improve engagement, monitor small group and whole class work, manage their physical presence in the classroom, and develop hands-on strategies for Spanish instruction. A note: As stated in the course description, this course is intended for second semester A2LP students who are eligible to take the course for upper level Spanish credit that is recognized by the Romance Languages Department. It has a different number only because we need to differentiate those students who are earning Spanish credit through A2LP.
