|Subject Overview:||This subject builds upon the theory and practice of teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) established in TESOL LAS 1. Moving beyond the fundamentals of methodology, this subject develops teacher candidates’ understandings of the needs of diverse groups of ESL learners within the field of TESOL more broadly, an understanding of TESOL in contexts beyond that of Australia (including EFL), an understanding of contemporary issues and debates on English language teaching and learning, and aims to develop teacher candidates’ capacity to become reflective practitioners of TESOL. Topics include working with individual differences, the middle years, senior secondary students, new arrivals including those with limited or disrupted schooling, local students including those with language backgrounds other than English and indigenous students, international students, ICT, bilingual education, policy contexts for TESOL, and the contested nature of the knowledge base of language teacher education|
