This course is specifically intended for new graduate student instructors in French, Italian and Spanish. Although students will be introduced to theories which can be applied to the teaching of any language in any academic context, practical applications of these theories will all be done in the languages which students are teaching as graduate student instructors in the Department of Romance Languages. The goal of this course is to provide a theoretical foundation and practical experiences that allow students to develop a critical and reflective attitude about teaching, enabling them to make sound choices related to teaching and selection and creation of instructional materials.

This course is designed to provide students with opportunities to:

  • become familiar with theories of second/foreign language acquisition (SLA) and research that inform foreign language teaching in the U.S.;
  • explore their own beliefs about foreign language learning and teaching through readings and discussions on theoretical issues and the practical implications of theory and research on classroom instruction;
  • observe and critique teaching performances;
  • learn techniques for teaching and evaluation each of the four skills (listening, reading, speaking, writing), grammar, vocabulary, and culture;
  • explore ways of integrating the teaching of language, literature, and culture;
  • become acquainted with technology for use in the foreign language classroom;
  • develop instructional materials that demonstrate their understanding of theoretical concepts and learning strategies underlying communicative approaches to language teaching and a sensitivity to diverse learning styles.
