Particular attention is given to cross-curricular and cultural diversity issues in language development and language arts methods for K-12. Attention is also given to the use of technology in language learning. Credential candidates focus on the California Reading/Language Arts content standards found in the 1999 Framework for guidance on curriculum and instruction. Opportunities to apply theory to practice in a tutorial setting are provided.
