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.

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.
