  29. Objectives: Knowledge of Language Principles:

    a.Demonstrate an understanding of the nature of language as a system for communication in classroom activities.

    b.Identify the subsystems the English language uses for communication.

    c.Explain the phonemic-graphemic (sound and symbol) relationship of English.

    d.Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship of phonemic, morphemic, semantic, syntactic systems of language to the reading process through assigned activities.

    e.Categorize basic concepts of phonology as they apply to language development, e.g.,, stress, intonation, juncture, and pitch.

    f.Identify the significant features of the phonological systems that cause problems in understanding, speaking, reading, and writing English among LEP students of diverse language backgrounds.

    g.Identify the significant features of the grammatical/structural systems (morphological and syntactic) that interfere with understanding, speaking, reading and writing English.

    h.Identify significant lexical features that interfere with understanding, speaking, reading, and writing English.

    i.Determine phonemic characteristics in a given word. E.g., consonants, blends, vowels, and diphthongs.

    j.Show familiarity with a commonly used system of phonetic transcription.

    k.Determine phonological characteristics that are meaningful/significant for LEP students in relation to their first language(s) such as voicing of consonants (rice/rise), intonation, and rhythm/stress and juncture.

    l.Identify word order features of English that represent interferences for LEP students of diverse backgrounds.

    m.Show familiarity with morphological features of English that represent interferences for LEP students of diverse backgrounds.

    n.Show familiarity with lexical features of English that represent interferences for LEP students of diverse backgrounds such as misleading cognates, and words with various social cultural and contextual meanings.

    o.Recognize phonographemic differences.

    p.Identify structural patterns in a given word such as root words, affixes, and syllables.

    q.Show familiarity with compound word and noun adduct structures in English.

    r.Apply principles of English morphology as they relate to language acquisition.

    s.Compare the characteristics of idiomatic expressions, slang, and standard American English, understand dialect variations, and respect linguistic differences.

    t.Determine principles of morphological interference between English and other languages.

    u.Categorize/analyze the structure of English sentences.

    v.Recognize methods of grammatical analysis: traditional, structural, or contemporary.

    w.Determine principles of syntactic interference between English and other languages.

    x.Identify principles of contrastive and error analysis.

    y.Apply knowledge of language principles in the teaching of LEP students while using ESOL instructional strategies for specific learning styles.

    z.Demonstrate the ability to contrast the English language and the language(s) of the diverse LEP language groups in a given ESOL class.
