EDUC 6632 - Assessment and Instruction to Promote Literacy Development


(3 sem. cr.) Literacy development is a complex process involving a profusion of skills and strategies in several critical areas: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, and writing. This course focuses on assessment and instruction to promote literacy development in these areas. Education professionals will learn how to use a variety of assessments to determine the literacy needs of emergent, beginning, developing, intermediate, and advanced readers, taking into consideration linguistic, cultural, and academic diversity. They will also examine a multitude of research-based instructional strategies to promote literacy development and apply them based on assessment results, student observations, and knowledge of students’ readiness, interests, learning preferences, and linguistic and cultural identities. The use of digital text, electronic resources, and critical literacies will be emphasized.
