This Course introduces the student or teacher to the substance and strategies of proficiency-oriented second-language instruction(K-12). The course will enable the student to compose a working definition of proficiency, and explore possible approaches (instructional techniques) for attaining the goals indicated by this definition. Attention is also given to selected topics in both first and second language acquisition theory and practice. An introduction to general linguistics is helpful but not required. Students will be placed in a secondary classroom where they will study issues related to teaching pedagogy.l
