American College of Education offers the online M.Ed. in Teaching English Learners. As the ELL (English Language Learners) population expands in schools across the nation, a growing need exists for educators who are knowledgeable and adept in designing and implementing instruction for students who do not speak English as their first language.
Sample of Program Courses:
- Foundations of ESL and Bilingual Education
- Assessment of ESL and Bilingual Students
- Cross-Cultural Studies for Teaching ELLs

- Diverse Learners
In addition, teachers of ELLs need to be skillful advocates for their students and the programs their schools need to support these students. This requires educators to be prepared to take on leadership roles among their colleagues and to work collaboratively with all stakeholders, including students, staff, families and the outside community.
