UNM/APS ESL Endorsement 2017 Summer Institute

Posted on December 16, 2016

For the past eighteen summers, UNM and APS have sponsored an ESL Summer Institute designed to help in-service and pre-service teachers of all grade levels secure ESL endorsements. The 19th annual six-week 2017 Institute will be held at La Mesa Elementary School from June 5 to July 14. The institute runs Monday through Friday from 8:00 am ~ 1:00 pm. There will be an opportunity to work with ESL students at the Summer Institute.

The following courses are offered at the Summer Institute:

  • LLSS 453/580 – Foundations of Bilingual Education/Seminar in the Education of the Bilingual Student
  •   LLSS 482/581 – Teaching English as a Second Language
  •   LLSS 459/559 – Second Language Literacy

The courses and the schedule are integrated; therefore students need to take all three courses. (If you have taken one of the courses, a Field Experience course can be substituted for it.) Notification of acceptance will be e-mailed to applicants a few after receipt of the application. To apply to UNM in non-degree status, call 277-6044 or visit this website:
