Literacy Acquisition in Spanish/English Bilingual Education (3-0)
This course examines Spanish/English dual language development as related to literacy in both languages. Formal and informal language development is explored, along with the impact of structural delivery systems like television and school-based instruction. Alternate models (and their theoretical bases) for structural delivery systems will be compared and contrasted, with emphasis placed on those currently supported by research or the wisdom of educational practice. Prerequisite: Admission to Teacher Education.
