Articulating their knowledge prepares students to be able to MSDLAs as they implement the principles that guide best practices in regular, day-to-day teaching with ELs. 

Students have been introduced to TELL Tools in prerequisite courses. They will now review their knowledge of three tools used in the current course by participating in MSDLAs, which they will create as the major project of the course.
