From: May 7- 19
Students will experience linguistic and cultural diversity in a new immigrant destination in Hazleton, which has the fastest-growing Latino population in Pennsylvania. Students also will gain valuable knowledge and experience by tutoring and mentoring English language learners (ELLs) and working closely with classroom teachers.
The course's innovative program offers students the opportunity to engage with pre-K–12 ELLs and their teachers in public school classrooms and in community-based after-school settings. Students also will organize and participate in a community service project in the Hazleton community and participate in seminars with Penn State professors focused on linguistic and cultural diversity and effective teaching of ELLs.
