Course Description

While dyslexia and associated learning differences affect reading and writing skills and general academic performance, they also significantly affect second language learning. Considering the focus on inclusion in contemporary German curricula, this course will provide future teachers with the necessary background knowledge and pedagogical skills to support the accommodation of such students in the classroom and to facilitate their second language learning. The course will begin with a review of the basic knowledge of the association between phonemes and graphemes, a review of the main definitions and descriptions of dyslexia, followed by a description of associated learning differences, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, ADD/ADHD and Asperger’s Syndrome, with specific reference to the impact on foreign language learning. Students will learn how to undertake miscue analysis, pen and paper dyslexia testing and digital screening, subsequently proceed to consider ways of fomenting accommodation in the classroom, and consider ways of raising phonemic awareness through both conventionally direct methods and through multimodality, including fast-developing Apps technologies.
