|Subject Overview:||This subject introduces teacher candidates to the theory and practice of teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL). With an emphasis on the nature of TESOL within Australian schools, and the Victorian education system in particular, this subject examines the needs of English second language (ESL) learners in the middle and senior years of schooling. Beginning with a theoretical foundation based on contemporary research in second language education about how languages are acquired and a communicative framework for understanding language teaching and learning, the subject then focuses on practical implications related to planning for, developing, and assessing ESL learners’ communicative competence in English as a language in its own right, as well as a medium of instruction across the school curriculum.|
