Standards-Based Instruction in Russian Language: From Theory to Practice
This course is designed to provide the theory associated with effective classroom instruction to develop students' communicative competency in Russian. There will be an emphasis on the role of the teacher as an instructional planner in a student-centered classroom that effectively matches curriculum, instruction, and assessment to identified learner outcomes. Course participants will learn the current theories and research to support an integrated skills approach to foreign language instruction and assessment. Participants will apply this knowledge to their Russian language instruction by creating and adapting materials that focus on language acquisition through content and real-life communication, and will use these materials in real-life teaching situations. In addition, participants will develop an e-portfolio that provides evidence of their ability to deliver standards-based instruction.
The program includes 2-day OPI familiarization workshop
Courses may be taken for graduate level credit.
Prospective, novice, and experienced teachers of Russian are encouraged to apply!
