TSL 5086 (old FLE 5431) - ESOL 2:
Second Language and Literacy Acquisition in Children and Adolescents

This course is designed to provide students with a critical understanding of instructional delivery which caters for the linguistic and literacy needs of minority / heritage communities. The focus of this course is located within postmodernist principles of cultural capital, discursive practices and difference. Students will be required to engage with the political debates and resultant educational ramifications concerning bilingual education, dual language programs, ESOL education, as well as other issues such as power and inequalities in language education. This sociocultural-critical theoretical framework will provide students with the basis to then negotiate issues of second language learning, critical pedagogy, language varieties, multicultural communities as well as critical literacy and reading development.
