Teaching Methods

For anyone who would like to teach Dakota/Lakota, whether you are fluent or not!

Description

This series of Teaching Methods courses may be taken in combination with any other courses or on their own. Student needs will be explored through concepts such as the stages of knowledge; language performance factors; and modes of communication. You will gain an appreciation of proven language pedagogies, such as Total Physical Response, Communicative Language Teaching, and Audiolingual Drills, as well as and the importance of modelling and spaced repetition for vocab building. We will also cover important lesson planning ideas such as backward design, modelling, spaced repetition, and free and guided practice.

You will get to know these ideas through a combination of class observation, theory discussion, and hands-on practice. This course is designed for anyone who would like to teach Dakota/Lakota, whether you are fluent or not.

Students may take either the morning track (9AM-12:15PM) or the afternoon track (1PM-4:15PM) but they do not need to take both. If you require specific college credits towards your degree or certificate program, press "Show Sessions" above to find the course code offered in each track.
