The World Languages Education Advisory Committee (WLEAC) supervises and manages all aspects of the World Languages Education Program at the undergraduate and graduate level.
Meet the Committee
The preparation of world language teachers involves the development of both second language and pedagogical knowledge and skills, a balance of theoretical training and clinical experience, and the nurturing of a reflective process that allows candidates to appreciate and understand the complex relationship between student and teacher. Training comprises a well-rounded second language major program, including opportunity for study abroad, and thorough pedagogical preparation, including multiple clinical experiences.
Courses in second language teaching methodology, second language materials development and testing, classroom management, and developmental psychology are designed to prepare you to meet the challenges of establishing constructive relationships with your students. During your training, you are nurtured as a student by your instructors, but you are also treated like the professional you are becoming. University instructors, as well as the secondary teachers who work with you during clinical experiences, model professional behavior and attitudes, including expertise in the content area, problem-solving skills, and the ability to form partnerships that will respond effectively and equitably to the needs of all learners.
The World Languages Education program in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the University of Delaware is set within the framework of a Departmental philosophy of teacher preparation and an overall University conceptual framework: UD Conceptual Framework and Outcomes.
Each semester, students must meet with the World Languages Education (WLE) Coordinator and Advisor, Blythe Milbury-Steen (firstname.lastname@example.org), to discuss their progress both in their coursework and in their completion of required elements for the Teaching Portfolio in Google Sites. The Teaching Portfolio is designed to enable you to track your progress carefully to meet program goals, receive feedback from WLE faculty at each checkpoint and present yourself professionally.
In the spring of your Junior (or next-to-last) year, you must apply for admission to Student Teaching in the spring of your Senior (or last) year.
In February of your Junior year, you are to submit the following documentation to your WLE program advisor:
In order to student teach in the spring of your last year, you must have the following:
Freshman Year: Students begin compiling the Teaching Portfolio if they are enrolled in 2xx level language courses during the Spring Semester.
Sophomore Year: All other students begin compiling the Teaching Portfolio. You will receive an orientation session to the portfolio. It will also be discussed in your pedagogy courses. You should also plan on taking the classes EDUC414 Teaching Exceptional Adolescents and 413 Adolescent Development and Educational Psychology in your sophomore year.
Junior Year: All students must:
Senior Year: All students must:
Incoming students, transfer students and students changing a major after matriculating will declare a Spanish Studies, French Studies, Italian Studies, German Studies, Latin Studies or Classics Studies with “an interest" in Education.
Students who wish to be admitted into a World Languages Education major (French, German, Italian, Latin, Latin with a concentration in Classics, or Spanish) must show an overall GPA of 2.75 and a minimum GPA of 3.0 in their language upon completion of at least two 300-level courses.
Students should then meet with the World Languages Education Program Coordinator and Advisor for official admission to the major. The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures recognizes the University application deadlines of July 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester. However, students are encouraged to apply much earlier.
