ED 606 Strategic Instruction for Emergent and Content Literacy, K-6

(3 credits)
This course addresses research-based instructional strategies for teaching literacy (including language development, reading, writing, and speaking) to K-6learners, as well as practical and effective modifications for diverse learners (including struggling readers, English language learners, and students with disabilities in reading). Strategic literacy instruction through the content areas of social studies and science, particularly in relation to post-elementary learners, also is emphasized. Formative and summative assessments of emergent and content literacy, including components of literacy (phonological awareness, word analysis, comprehension, vocabulary, fluency) also are addressed, with an emphasis on assessments and progress monitoring that communicate the student’s progress most clearly to parents, teachers, and the students themselves.

IMPORTANT: This course requires fieldwork. Students must have current required clearances on file with the School of Education. (See Obtaining Clearances)
