ESL 601 - Linguistics for Teachers

4 hours
In this course, the candidate will receive an introduction to language and linguistics for the K-12 classroom. The course will focus, but not exclusively, on the English language. The ESL candidate will be introduced to the traditional structure of linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, language change) and the contextual structure of linguistics (discourse, dialect, variation, language and culture, the politics of language). Such concepts as language and brain development, language acquisition, and second language learning will be presented. GR
