On-line Methods Course for Elementary School
A new on-line course for pre-service and
in-service elementary school world language teachers will be offered in Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 by Iowa State University (ISU). Marcia H. Rosenbusch, Ph.D., who is the ISU instructor
for the course, has invited a team of 14 leading national experts in elementary
school world language education to collaborate by teaching course components in
their areas of expertise.
The 14 collaborators, who include both
practicing teachers and teacher educators, represent both the commonly and less
commonly taught languages. They are Terry Caccavale
(MA), Carol Ann Dahlberg (MN), Tammy Dann (IA), Janet Glass (NJ), Jessica Haxhi
(CT), Cindy Kendall (MI), Lori Langer de Ramírez (NY), Mary Lynn Redmond (NC),
Nancy Rhodes (DC), Paul Sandrock (WI), Lynn Thompson (DC), Jacque Bott Van
Houten (KY), Rosanne Zeppieri (NJ), and Yan Wang (KY).
is designed for both pre-service teachers and practicing teachers who have
studied a world language extensively. Three undergraduate or graduate credits
are available. This course meets partial requirements for the Iowa Endorsement
in K-8 World Language Education. Please check with your State Department of
Education to see if this course meets requirements for endorsement or
certification in your state.
