EDUC 6562 - Understanding and Teaching the Language Arts♦


(3 sem. cr.) Education professionals in this course focus on principles and content standards defined and described by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and the International Reading Association (IRA). They learn that English language arts should be taught in a manner consistent with the constructivist view of learning and teaching within a culturally diverse and global society. Through weekly assignments and discussions, education professionals examine the characteristics of an effective teacher and a dynamic classroom; explore the role of motivation, comprehension, and engagement in helping students acquire 21st-century literacy skills; synthesize information on diversity and consider ways to make all students feel competent and capable; assess the effectiveness of 21st-century resources in motivating students; and evaluate the impact of new learning.
