Minor Description


As the number of public school students who are not native English speakers increases, the need for qualified teachers of English as a second language is increasing as well. To help meet these needs, BYU, in collaboration with its Public School Partnership, has developed an innovative program for teaching English language learners. This program prepares both teaching candidates and practicing teachers to work with linguistically and culturally diverse students in the regular classroom with pedagogic practices that are effective for all learners.
