The Concentration in TEAL
The Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba is proud to introduce the new PBDE
Concentration in Teaching English as an Additional/Second Language.
The first of its kind in Manitoba, the concentration will launch in September 2020.
Designed for educators who work with EAL learners in K-12 school settings, adult education, and
post-secondary contexts in Manitoba, the concentration equips educators to respond to EAL
learners and communities in ways that are advocacy-orientated, pedagogically appropriate,
and culturally and linguistically sustaining. The following four threads are interwoven
throughout the concentration:
1. cultural proficiency
2. culturally sustaining pedagogy
3. community-school relationships, and
Students will select a minimum of 18 credit hours of coursework at the 5000 level from the
Concentration courses. All students who successfully complete the concentration will graduate
from the PBDE in TEAL.
