Language & Culture Coaching
In Language & Culture Coaching, multilingual graduate students work toward developing their oral English skills so they can communicate effectively as TAs.
Some students participate with the goal of meeting the TA language requirement while others are already experienced TAs who want to continue fine-tuning their English to best support the students in their classes. If you are a multilingual grad student--whether you're a future TA or a TA with years of experience--we're happy to support you!
Common topics include American English pronunciation, vocabulary, pragmatics, classroom management, discourse management, and presentation skills.
Instruction is delivered through a one-unit EDU 198 course, and all participants will complete one or more of the tracks listed below.
