Foundations of ELL/ENL
For Sioux Falls School District Staff Only!


This course will provide a foundational background and knowledge base to the historical, legal, and theoretical frameworks of education for English Language Learners (ELLs). The course will focus on acculturation issues for ELLs since a strong background in this forms the foundation for understanding how ELLs learn, how language acquisition works, and how to respond to behaviors in the classroom that are a result of acculturation issues. This course will also help prepare you to be knowledgeable about culture, content and learning; able and willing to select or adapt curriculum and pedagogy to meet the needs of diverse learners; and a skillful practitioner, a reflective professional, and a lifelong learner, striving to become an agent for positive change in the students, school, and society.


Important Session Information:

FOR ELL TEACHERS CURRENTLY EMPLOYED BY THE SFSD: Title III funds will be used to pay the SFSD registration fee and may pay college credit fees for current SFSD teachers who teach ELL classes. Status will be verified by the Federal Programs Director. You will receive notification after registration closes if your Augustana registration fee is to be waived.

FOR ALL OTHER SFSD TEACHERS (NON-ELL): Title III funds will be used to pay the SFSD registration fee for current SFSD teachers. Participants may choose to take the class for CECHs at no extra charge, or they may elect graduate or undergraduate credit from Augustana at an additional charge. If taking the workshop for college credit, a check for $135 (made payable to "Augustana College") for the college credit fee will be collected at the first face-to-face class session.

*In order to take this class for college credit, you must be present at all scheduled class sessions as advertised (per Augustana's policy).
