    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone interested in a teaching career, EDU240 is a marvelous sweeping introduction to the needs, subtleties, and techniques required for teaching English as a second (or third, fourth...) language and culture. It is geared toward teaching ELLs who come to U.S. schools, but the principals are very applicable for teachers going abroad as well. Assignments are always meaningful and the professor is quite relaxed about deadlines.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned a great deal about culture - American, personal, and especially how to think about cultures overall. There is also a lot of experiential learning: this course has given me ideas for things to incorporate into the lessons I teach, and helped me flesh out and strengthen my own ideas.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Above all, as you're in class, reading assignments, and doing homework, imagine yourself in the context you think you'll be teaching in. All of the work becomes immediately relevant, and goes from "something I need to memorize" to "something I can develop and use in real life". Not many courses can make that leap as gracefully as this one does.
