Course Description

This course is aligned with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Guidelines for EL/Bilingual-Bicultural Education.  Throughout this course we will explore various forms of authentic assessment that implement the essential Response to Intervention (RTI) components for English Learners (EL) and develop instruments that can be used as Curriculum-Based Measurements (CBM) for ongoing evaluation of student progress in reading and math; learn to create and implement the Cognitive Academic Language Learning Approach (CALLA) in order to develop curriculum and strategies with EL; and use the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) to design lessons which incorporate the eight key components of teaching language and content effectively by integrating the academic skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking in content area instruction.

This course can be completed 100% online. However, for students who prefer in-person instruction, there will be some lessons presented in-person. The course is organized into units of instruction with assigned readings, class discussions, written assignments, and lesson plans with oral presentations using a variety of technology.  The class assignments, lessons and other artifacts are to be utilized in the teacher portfolio.
