|TSLE 4440||Working with Multilingual Populations|
This course prepares students to effectively work with multilingual populations in diverse work contexts. By closely working with a multilingual individual one-on-one in meeting their language needs, students will become familiar with current second language classroom research and methods and materials with an emphasis on adapting these methods and materials to a specific work setting. Students will learn about themselves, different learning and communication styles, and working with diverse populations. The combination of the course work and tutoring experience allows students to explore a number of sociocultural and linguistic issues that multi-linguals encounter as well as assets that they have.
