Socio-Emotional Development of English Language Learners and Teacher Education

by Youb Kim - October 24, 2011

This commentary focuses on the gap between Common Core State Standards (Common Core State Standards Initiative, 2010) and Professional Standards for the Accreditation of Teacher Preparation Institutions (The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, 2007) in addressing socio-emotional development of English language learners (ELLs). Using a writing sample from Yonsu (pseudonym), a female student whose home language is Korean, I will make a case for the importance of supporting socio-emotional development of growing ELL student population in U.S. schools and their school success. I will then discuss an important challenge this gap imposes on teacher education programs in the United States.
