EDUC 660
Credits:
[3.0]
This course explores theories and methods for teaching and assessing writing in Spanish and its connections to listening, speaking and reading as part of the Spanish classroom in dual language and bilingual settings and across the content areas in the elementary and middle school. Candidates will develop an awareness of themselves as writers, and as teachers of writing, as they explore authentic purposes for writing and develop their craft in two basic genres (personal and academic). The teaching of Spanish grammar and the importance of nurturing individual strengths and interests in an inclusive setting are an integral part of the course. This course is taught in Spanish.
