Section Description

This introductory online course explores the theories, practices, and policies related to race and language, and how they impact the working, teaching, and learning of English learners in multilingual and multicultural settings. We will focus on exploring both micro- and macro-level sociocultural contexts that have shaped current policies, education programs, and teaching practices of English learners. We will examine second language acquisition theories and research for how they support or conflict with current debates on race, language, and school. We will engage course readings, materials, and discussions to gain a concrete understanding of the struggles and barriers that English learners face during their transition into the English-dominant U.S. culture, as well as appreciate the benefits of a linguistically diverse society. This course fulfills the 3-credit D1 (Race & Racism) requirement.
