On-line Methods Course for Elementary School World Languages

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).

This course 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.
