RL&L 223L: Second Language Pedagogy - Teaching Romance Languages

The course is intended for students who may be considering a career in education. Students will search for authentic language materials, and will evaluate, adapt, and create pedagogical materials. By the end of the semester, they will have created a portfolio of activities that can be used in a foreign language classroom. In this service learning course, students are required to volunteer a minimum of two hours per week in the Middletown Public Schools, assisting French and Spanish teachers, and will write weekly journal entries reflecting on their classroom experience. Students are expected to have taken at least SPAN 221 or FREN 215 to be eligible for the class.
