SPAN 9985 Applied Linguistics and Teaching Methodology in Spanish (Spring: 3 )
The aim of this seminar is to provide students with a solid basis in the tenets of second language acquisition (SLA) and recent developments in the field of applied linguistics, with an emphasis on teaching methodology of the Spanish language. Students will develop a reflective attitude toward the teaching-learning process and acquire the required pedagogical tools and metalinguistic awareness to conduct successful teaching. Practical aspects such as class planning, selection and production of teaching materials, and students’ assessment will be discussed throughout the semester. Among other projects, students will work on their own pedagogical materials portfolio with the professor’s supervision.
Instructor(s): Esther Gimeno Ugalde
Comments: The course is designed for graduate students who already have some experience in teaching and are looking for specific training in language teaching, as well as for undergraduate students with an excellent command of Spanish who are interested in language teaching.
