This course provides an introduction to teaching methodologies as well as theories of second language learning. The first two weeks introduce basic principles and concepts in linguistic theory and linguistic structure. The remaining weeks examine different teaching methods (from the most traditional to the most innovative) with an emphasis on how different theories inform methodological disciplines. We will also discuss different teaching techniques based on each method and will discuss their practical applications.

The goal of this course is to provide students with a level of knowledge that enables them to succeed as language professionals.

This class counts toward the Spanish major and as elective credit toward the Spanish minor.

Course Requirements:

Students will apply their knowledge of course content in various hands-on teaching experiences, homework assignments, lesson planning, peer teaching article and presentation summaries, quizzes, and exams.
