The increase in global mobility as well as the spread of English as a global language has resulted in unprecedented levels of linguistic and cultural diversity in today?s schools. The purpose of the course is to examine current debates, theory and research in the field of ESL/EAL teaching to develop curriculum resources and instructional strategies to help students to better address diverse needs of the students in their own classrooms. Examples of the relevant topics are: What do teachers need to know to teach effectively in contexts where diversity is the norm? What are the most effective approaches for teaching ESL/EAL (and other language minority) students within schools and the wider society? How do power relations affect the kinds of educational program implemented for linguistically and culturally diverse students?
