LIT5213 - Strengthening Literacy for Elementary Teacher Preparation

Credits: 3
This course prepares students to implement a schoolwide leadership initiative to improve a comprehensive range of literacy skills. Specific principles and theories of emerging and developmental reading instruction are evaluated in relation to currently employed practice so teachers can immediately strengthen instruction. Students examine the scientific research base underlying different models of reading instruction. Special attention is given to curriculum mapping, alignment, and the development of an implementation plan to strengthen literacy. Five to 10 hours of embedded field experiences are included in the course.
