Methods of Teaching Foreign Language
Methods of Teaching Foreign Language addresses both the theory and practice of teaching a modern language and includes reflecting upon and discussing assigned readings in the text in order to promote communicative language teaching (CLT) and task-based instruction. The goal of this methods course is to provide strategies and techniques for effective teaching in the target language and to actualize a variety of hands-on experiences that will contribute to your growth as a professional educator. These hands-on experiences include teaching a vocabulary and a grammar lesson in the target language. Primarily a course for student teacher candidates, the class may also be taken by language majors who are currently enrolled in 400-level or 600-level classes.
