EDUC 6633 - Reading, Writing, and Critical Thinking in Content Disciplines♦


(3 sem. cr.) Reading for information in expository text is essential for learning—in school, in the workplace, and in life. The focus of this course is on developing literacy across the disciplines through a wide range of instructional methods, materials, and practices, including flexible grouping, and the selection of texts and other materials, such as digital tools and online resources that match the cognitive, cultural, and linguistic needs of literacy learners. Education professionals learn strategies for promoting disciplinary literacy across developmental levels, proficiencies, and cultural and linguistic backgrounds. High-quality literature that meets the interests and needs of all readers and represents various cultures, genres, and text structures, and assists students in making connections and bringing relevance to content courses across disciplines will be examined. The integration of information and communication technologies and 21st century literacy skills will be highlighted.
