This course will introduce participants to the English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards and provide strategies for using the standards to guide and inform instruction. ESL instructors can benefit from familiarity with and reliance on the ELP Standards for Adult Education to guide instruction toward the increased rigor and skills necessary for successful transition to work or to postsecondary training or further education and for participation in communities that adult learners need.
This course takes place entirely online and runs for four consecutive weeks, from 3/13/2023 to 4/9/2023. Weekly participation is required, though participants may, during a given week, log in whenever they wish. A 1 1/2-hour, kick-off Webinar will take place in the first week. Date and time will be posted on the online course platform. Course login information will be sent to participants by 3/10/23.
Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of participation (15 hours); they are also eligible to apply to CSUS for 1.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) if they wish.
