Additionally, students will acquire and demonstrate the ability to utilize assessment information to diagnose students’ language abilities and develop lessons promoting students’ access and achievement in relation to state-adopted academic standards. This practical course requires the classroom implementation of various activities throughout the semester. Fieldwork hours are required.
