Description: This clinical residency in a classroom with culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) learners requires at least three full, sequential instructional days per week in an assigned accredited public or private elementary classroom with English Language Learners. The CLD residency and accompanying seminar includes opportunities to synthesize content from all previous coursework, including concentration coursework for serving CLD students: methods for teaching CLD learners; professionalism; designing, implementing, and assessing instruction for diverse learners; student motivation and engagement; and collaboration with colleagues and families, particularly diverse families. The teacher candidate is an active participant in the elementary school community through close observation of the mentor teacher, collaborative practice with the mentor teacher, and/or supervised independent practice.  Concepts and skills learned in RDG 4444  are a particular focus in this residency; however, residents are engaged in all content areas.

Note: Students are required to earn a C- or higher in order to be recommended for licensure.
