EDPD 8060 - Issues and Trends in Reading and Literacy


(5 cr.) Literacy may be understood in multiple ways across various settings and populations. This course is designed to lay a foundation for educators to define literacy based on historical and contemporary perspectives, sociopolitical landscape, the influence of social media and technological innovation, and influences coming from all national, state, local, and Common Core standards that influence literacy programs in P–12. Barriers to student literacy learning and ways to engage community and family involvement, as well as increasing communication, will be examined. Based on their learning in this course and drawing on professional reading and curriculum standards, education professionals will develop a plan to gain stakeholder support for improvement of curriculum and literacy programming at the systems level.
