Vitae

Areas of responsibility

Dr. Joshua Schulze helps prepare effective teachers of linguistically diverse students in K-12 contexts through teaching, research, and service. In addition to teaching courses in educational linguistics and language acquisition, he is a seminar leader for MAT students. 

Dr. Schulze also serves as the coordinator of the ESOL and Bilingual endorsement program.

What you will do and learn in my courses

In Dr. Schulze's classes students develop a deeper understanding of language and the language learning/acquisiton process. By developing their knowlege of language, future teachers will take a language lens to their work with emergent bilinguals. This language lens will inform your instructional design and pedagogy in ways that will enhance the learning of your emergent bilingual/English learner students.

Research areas

Dr. Schulze’s scholarship explores ways to support the academic literacy development of emergent bilinguals in  K-12 instructional settings. In particular, he examines ways systemic functional linguistics can inform our understandings of how discpline specific language works and how that knowledge can strengthen academic writing instruction to emergent bilngual learners in school settings. 

Professional experience

Dr. Schulze brings extensive experience in teaching emergent bilingual students in a variety of instructional contexts in both the US and abroad. In addition to his work as a classroom teacher in elementary settings in Boston and Kissimmee, Florida, he has also taught EFL in Warsaw, Poland. He recently has taught teacher candiates in Shanghai, China.

Current research

Currently, I am exploring the academic writing practices of Mandarin speaking students who are learning to write the academic genres of teacher education programs. Specifically, I am analyzing the ways a systemic functional linguistic approach to genre pedagogy supports the appropriation of written academic genres in an Introduction to ESOL/Bilingual Education class in China.
