Students in Dr. Karen Sorvaag’s Advanced Literacy Methods for Diverse Learners course have teamed up with DLI students this semester for a mutually beneficial partnership. In addition to observing ESL classes, the ED 445 students are working one-on-one with international students in order to provide assistance with their development of English language skills necessary for living and studying at SMU. While these future K-8 educators are experiencing what it’s like to work with students from different cultural and language backgrounds, DLI students are gaining much appreciated assistance with not only their formal coursework but also their ability to navigate successfully through a new social and academic life in the U.S.
