CISE 4290 Methods of Teaching Secondary and Middle School World Languages II

This course is designed to inform pre-service teachers of the current theories, approaches, methods, and practices and techniques of teaching a World Language in grades 6-12. Students will gain in-depth pedagogical knowledge and understanding of these methods and approaches, as well as assessment in a language classroom.  Specifically, students will apply their theoretical understanding and pedagogical knowledge to classroom situations. They will analyze and critique curricula, engage in inquiry-driven discussions about theory and methodology, and plan innovative instruction. They will continue to study local, state, national, and international standards and trends for language teaching, and they will learn the finer points of lesson planning for World Language classes, following the William Paterson University of New Jersey COE’s OFE Lesson Plan format, as well as unit planning and assessment.  Students will design lesson plans, receive critiques on them, and implement them, by teaching sample lessons to the class.
