GERM-731 Theoretical, Research, and Instructional Issues in Advanced Instructed SLA
Fall for 2015-2016
  • Byrnes, Heidi
  • 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.
