READ 6609 - Literacy in Academically Diverse Classrooms (Accelerating)


(3 sem. cr.) Today’s classrooms require teachers to become competent and confident in supporting both students who struggle with reading and writing and those who excel. Education professionals in this course focus on accelerating the literacy development of students with reading difficulties, including students who have specific learning disabilities, and on addressing the needs of gifted students. Through coursework, education professionals have opportunities to examine informal and formal assessments, the use of data to inform instruction, and practical guidelines for implementing the Response to Intervention (RTI) model. Education professionals explore concepts and strategies, including collaboration with support resources, methods to differentiate and scaffold instruction, progress monitoring, leveling books, intervention strategies, and the use of motivating texts and technology tools to support student learning.
