The Secondary School Curriculum in Foreign Language

Information

The Secondary School Curriculum in Foreign Language

This course provides an introduction to the teaching of foreign languages in secondary schools, particularly with respect to the selection, scope and sequence of topics. Both theoretical and practical, this course will focus on key topics such as planning a class, teaching grammar (or not), integrating culture, using technology, etc. You will take notes as you read a variety of texts and watch videos. There is a 35-hour fieldwork requirement, which will allow you to connect theory and practice. You will write about what you are learning in this course and the application of this knowledge to your own (future) classroom. (What was the main idea? How would you concretely apply it? How do you expect your students to react?, etc.). The primary objective of this course is to have students create their own teaching materials while adopting a sound theoretical basis for their own teaching philosophy. Students will also discuss standards and general trends in the profession.
