Online Methods Syllabus

cat

 TENTATIVE ONLINE METHODS COURSE SYLLABUS - FALL 2014

Course Description

This course is designed to address the needs and concerns of students preparing to teach foreign languages in the K-12 schools and in-service teachers who need a methods course for endorsement or licensure. It will also serve in-service teachers who are seeking to update their knowledge of second-language acquisition and instruction for personal growth or for academic credit toward state re-licensing or for national board certification.This methods course is organized around the Standards for Foreign Language Learning, commonly referred to as the Five Cs: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. Students will learn about current theoretical bases for second-language acquisition and how theory informs classroom practice. The course does not promote a particular methodology but rather presents principles of learning from which teachers can draw as they make decisions about instruction. In today's classrooms with diverse learners and curricular options, teachers must possess a repertoire of teaching practices based on an evolving research and knowledge base.

Prerequisites

Bachlors degree in a World Language or related field.

Course Objectives

1. Demonstrate an understanding of current theories of second-language acquisition research.

2. Design unit and daily lesson plans in alignment with the standards for language learning.

3. Create lesson segments that reflect theory and practice.

4. Design performance-based assessments.

5. Use technology as a tool for professional development and to promote student learning.

6. Develop the ability to reflect on their teaching, student learning and to make changes as warranted.

Presentations 


Student-Student Interaction

In a "live course", you would be interacting with other students in your class. That interaction is important to the learning process. In this online course, you are encouraged to take advantage of opportunities designed to promote interactive communication in cyberspace. Your classmates may be in sites distant from your location; they may have very different backgrounds and experiences with language learners.  Get to know them, seek to work with them.  You will do this through: 

Discussion Groups where you and your classmates post messages and react to one another.  This activity promotes interaction among students as you would experience in a classroom.

Faculty-Student Interaction

One of the major ways you will share your progress with your instructor is through submissions to your electronic portfolio.  There are three kinds of assignments you will submit to your electronic portfolio:

  • Check-ins: These questions follow readings in the text or Web page material.  In a classroom, professors often ask questions based upon reading assignments or discussion.  Students respond to these spontaneously to show their understanding.  The check-ins replicate this in your web course.  You should respond to these questions thoughtfully based upon your understanding of the material.  Spend a limited amount of time with these activities.
  • Reflect/Respond: These portfolio assignments ask you to reflect, to think about the topic a bit, to come up with a response, to create an example, to discuss an instructional decision you might make. These responses may require your exiting the program to find a reference or supporting material.
  • Project:  During the course, generally at the end of a module, you will create a project that demonstrates your ability to formulate a lesson unit involving the topic you have studied in that module.  Projects require planning, organization, and instructional decision-making.
