Description

Students in this course explore the themes of “Language and Community” as they learn about the experience of migrant farmworkers in southeast Michigan. What is the economic, cultural, and historical context of migrant farm work in the U.S.? Who are the workers? Where do they come from? How do they live? What is the history of migrant outreach and education efforts? As they investigate these questions, students also learn and practice the methods and techniques for teaching ESL to beginning level, primarily Spanish-speaking population.

Course Requirements:

Students will be evaluated on the basis of written work (reflection papers and lesson preparation), an oral presentation, as well as preparation and participation in class discussions.
