EDUC 8541 - Foundations in Reading and Literacy Leadership


(6 sem. cr.) Literacy may be understood in multiple ways across various settings and populations. This course will lay a foundation for leaders to define literacy based on sociopolitical landscape, the influence of social media and technological innovation, and influences coming from Common Core standards that influence literacy programs in P–20 and beyond. As part of this foundational course, candidates will also learn the process for how to succeed as a graduate student at Walden University, understanding how Walden supports students in developing (a) facility with Walden University’s online learning environment; (b) understanding of the university and the program support systems, expectations, and outcomes; and (c) graduate-level critical thinking, research, and writing skills.
