EDUC 6689 - Guiding and Supporting School Literacy Environments


(3 sem. cr.) The reading teacher serves as a knowledgeable resource throughout the school or district. In this course, education professionals acquire the knowledge and skills to work with staff, students, and others to create a vibrant literacy environment that promotes a vision of literacy for all children building upon their linguistic, cultural, and academic diversity. Education professionals learn how to use school assessment data to determine appropriate supports for students and staff, including Response to Intervention (RTI), leadership activities, and intervention programs that incorporate foundational knowledge and effective practices. Approaches to providing teacher professional development and to managing and improving school-wide literacy initiatives, including the integration of technology tools and resources, will be emphasized.
