Using a balanced perspective, candidates discuss theoretical models and philosophies of reading and writing instruction and their applicability in the classroom setting. Content also includes learning about phonics, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension theories and practice. Candidates explore implementation of the Common Core State Standards using a variety of assessment and instructional practices, including reading and writing strategies (i.e. before, during, after reading both fiction and non-fiction texts), close reading of complex texts from diverse perspectives, multicultural literacy materials, use of technology as a tool for learning, and extensive reading and writing for authentic purposes across subject areas. Appropriate literacy assessments will also be included. Clinically-based course taught on-site in a partner elementary school. 24 hours of fieldwork required.
