Strategies for developing vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, writing, content-area literacy, and media literacy are also explored. Through course readings and virtual field experiences, candidates analyze literacy instruction and identify research-based principles that support the literacy and learning of all students, including English language learners. Candidates examine the role of formal and informal assessments in planning and modifying literacy instruction to meet the needs of a diverse student population. Topics include organizing the literacy classroom, differentiating literacy instruction, and involving families to support the literacy development of students. (Prerequisite(s): EDUC 2400.)
