Arabic Learning & Instruction

Issues and Theory in Arabic Learning and Instruction
In this course we will study second language acquisition in theory and in practice. Using Arabic as our starting point, we will examine core issues in language learning and instruction, such as the teaching of culture, learner variables, and evaluating outcomes. We will also address issues specific to Arabic language learning, such as Arabic diglossia and current curricular innovation. Building on our theoretical work, we will analyze and evaluate language-learning resources, methods of lesson planning, and materials development. Class sessions will include discussions of contemporary trends in language teaching, language task creation and evaluation, and student teaching demonstrations with peer feedback.
