The Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP) of the Stanford Graduate School of Education (GSE) seeks to prepare and support teacher leaders in creating equitable and successful schools and classrooms. This document is the syllabus for the course entitled EDUC264E: Metodos y Materiales en Los Salones Bilingues, designed to prepare elementary teacher candidates who are pursuing a Bilingual Authorization and plan to teach for Spanish-English bilingual programs. The course is primarily conducted in Spanish and explores theories, research, and methods related to Spanish-English students’ effective instruction in grades K-8 in different bilingual settings. Over the nine sessions of the course, participants come to understand how bilingualism is defined and enacted in schools and explore theories and practices that help build bilingual learners. Participants are required to create a learning profile based on the academic, linguistic, and cultural information of the students they choose to study. Coursework includes bilingual education, social justice, and equity, and more.
