GERM-731 Theoretical, Research, and Instructional Issues in Advanced Instructed SLA
Fall for 2013-2014
The course addresses theoretical, research, and instructional issues that arise when one investigates the L2 learning of adult instructed learners and explores approaches to teaching that support and enhance learning a second or third language, including a heritage language, to that level of capacity. Students gain in-depth knowledge through committing to a particular topic within one of the three areas, – theoretical, research, or instructional issues. They will develop their project in consultation with me, present it to the class, and prepare it as a final paper. Possible areas of interest include: theoretical issues arising from the literature, insights from research studies, and instructional or curricular proposals for advanced learning on the basis of classroom observation and/or available classroom data, such as from GU courses.
