Curriculum

The ESL curriculum's experiential learning model allows teachers to utilize the strategies immediately and practice them throughout the course. Teachers will watch video clips of other K-12 teachers demonstrating the strategies so they can be easily replicated.

The ESL courses use curricula aligned to the following national standards and benchmarks:

K-State is the first to incorporate biography-driven teaching strategies, which teach the biography of the individual and take into account the student's academic background and what does or doesn't engage the student in learning another language.

This program has been licensed and replicated by institutions across the nation, and our content has been field tested in more than six states, 50 districts and 250 schools.

Three credits in each of the following core areas is required: curriculum, teaching and learning, diversity, educational technology, and research and scholarship. In addition, at least 15 hours in an area of specialization are required. All students take the Master’s Project (1 credit), while others also take the Master’s Report (2 credits) or the Master’s Thesis (6 credits).
