EDC 505. School Counselors Working with Diverse Learners. 3 Credits.

The course has been developed to meet the requirements of Pennsylvania Department of Education (ACT 49.13) and in recognition of the growing number of English Language Learners (ELL) in public schools. The goal of this course is to provide students with an overview of the characteristics and unique challenges confronted by the diverse learner. Students, who because of limited English language proficiency or disabilities may exhibit literacy deficits and experience academic needs that require both varied instructional strategies and counselor support and advocacy. The role of the school counselor as advocate and supportive agent for the diverse learner will be highlighted along with the unique value of counselor as 'teacher-consultant and collaborator'.
