Building Skills in Two Languages Extended

Description

In the United States, dual language learners are currently the fastest growing population of young children. Early child care professionals play an important role in helping children learn English while supporting their families in maintaining their home language. In this two-week course, go beyond gaining knowledge and being to apply strategies that support young dual language children through a Learn-Apply format. The Learn section of this extended course explores information and strategies to support dual language learners with vocabulary expansion and meaningful conversations while supporting and celebrating the child’s home languages. Then in the Apply section, begin to apply knowledge by completing an Apply Project. You will choose from two project options: complete the project offline and return online to submit your project, engage in interactive peer learning discussions, and self-reflect.

The Learn section of the course includes the same content as Building Skills in Two Languages.

There are several due date requirements. On the first Monday, the Introduction section is due by noon (CST), the online Learn portion is due by the end of the first week, Thursday noon (CST), and all remaining course requirements are due by the end of the course session.

This course is appropriate for all early care and education professionals.
