EDUC 6705 - Foundations of Reading and Literacy♦


(3 sem. cr.) Education professionals in this course establish a mindset for reading and literacy instruction through which they recognize the dynamic landscape of 21st-century education. They explore historical perspectives on literacy education and the social, political, economic, and cultural forces that influence today’s classroom. They learn, analyze, and apply research-based foundations of effective literacy instruction, including the five pillars of reading—phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. They explore and discuss a variety of related topics, including language development, new technologies, writing, learner diversity, assessment, and developmental approaches to instruction. Through this course, education professionals also learn the importance of collaboration, parent/family connections, data-driven decision making, and ongoing professional development.
