This course introduces students to the theories and practice of English language teaching in the context of the local community and provides them with hands-on teaching practice experiences in local service organizations. Participants explore the overall theme of “Language and Community" by building knowledge and awareness of ESL teaching and learning through readings discussing the ideologies around the teaching and learning of English as a second language in the United States.

Students assist in a local ESL classroom or tutoring program for 2-3 hours per week for a total of 25 hours during the academic term. Potential site placements include:

  • Family Learning Institute
  • English Language Institute
  • Latino academic tutoring organizations
  • Ann Arbor Public School ESL classrooms

Class Format:

The plan is to offer this course in person if conditions permit. If visa delays or travel restrictions prevent students from being in Ann Arbor for the fall, this plan will be revised to allow students to participate remotely.
