TESOL in Practice explores teaching across the curriculum that includes the needs of students from English as an additional language or dialect (EALD) backgrounds.

You will be encouraged to build on what you are discovering about the development of literacy in English 1 K-6 and how you may build on this knowledge and make decisions about an appropriate pedagogy for supporting students learning English as an additional language or dialect.
