ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING (ELL)

Online Certificate of Completion/Degree Specialization in ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING

To help each one of your students succeed, you’ll need to understand all of the tools at your disposal to help children from diverse language backgrounds learn English.

In today’s preK-12 schools, English is not every student’s first language. To help every child reach his or her full potential, you’ll need to understand how young learners acquire new languages, and the tools at your disposal to help them learn. This program is specially designed to help you do just that.

In the English Language Learning (ELL) certificate or specialization program, you’ll study linguistics, theories of language acquisition, and instructional plans for language learners. You’ll also gain a solid understanding of the laws that govern ELL education, state and national standards for ELL curricula, and methods for assessing your students’ progress.

This specialization neither leads to licensure nor to an additional endorsement.

This program consists of four graduate online English language learning courses for a total of 12 credit hours.
