The School of Education is offering courses for those who want to teach English language learners. Through a Wheeler Award, which grants funds to faculty in support of developing new courses, faculty member Mary Lisa Vertuca offers these courses to those studying Montessori, early and middle childhood education at undergraduate or graduate levels.
“Our ultimate goal,” says Vertuca, “is to have our students take one of these courses as a program requirement. These courses offer future teachers a great opportunity to teach ELL students in the United States or in international schools. It’s an exciting new direction for the School of Education, and I’m glad to be part of it.”
