EDUC 6631 - Foundations of Reading: Theory, Research, and Practice♦


(3 sem. cr.)
An effective reading teacher possesses comprehensive knowledge of the components of reading and applies this knowledge to instructional practice. Education professionals will explore the domains of development as they pertain to K–12 literacy instruction and research and explore the impact of research-based practices on literacy development. Language development and its relationship to the progression of reading development, including variations related to cultural, linguistic, and academic diversity, will be examined. Education professionals will investigate current issues in literacy education, including the reading achievement gap, brain research, standards and accountability, and new perspectives on 21st-century skills and digital literacy learning.
