EDUC 6946T - Teaching Beginning Readers
(3 sem. cr.)
Self-Paced Course for Educators (in partnership with Canter): Pre-K–3 • Print & DVD and Online
This course offers a foundation for early literacy by taking a developmental, student-centered approach to reading instruction. Using the five pillars of reading as an organizational framework, education professionals will explore the characteristics of beginning, emergent, and transitional readers and implement developmentally appropriate assessments and strategies for their instruction. Teachers apply what they learn immediately in their classrooms with lessons developed based on their personal teaching situation, including their literacy program, their students, and their goals for success.
Learn how to:
- Assess students’ progress in developmental word knowledge.
- Select appropriate and engaging texts for a particular group of students.
- Determine appropriate instructional strategies for improving reading fluency.
