Program Description

Masters of Education in English Language Learners

Vanderbilt Peabody College

Peabody's master of education program in English Language Learners is open to students who already possess a state teaching license or others who wish to pursue advanced study in the area of teaching linguistically diverse students in international settings. The program is designed to introduce students to the foundational and practical information to effectively serve populations who are learning English as a second language. The program consists of two strands, teaching English language learners in U.S. educational settings and teaching English in an international setting.

TRANSLATE

We test an instructional model (TRANSLATE) designed to improve the English reading comprehension of EL students in grades 2 and 3. In TRANSLATE, students learn to identify key textual excerpts and use cognitive, linguistic and social strategies to facilitate translation and comprehension. We work with four teachers and their EL students (32) in two elementary schools. Our goal is to establish proof of concept for the TRANSLATE approach and to identify any remaining problems teachers encounter during its implementation.
