CIEE 3120 Literacy and Learning in Inclusive Classrooms

This course focuses on selected research-based language arts instructional approaches and models used in elementary classrooms.  Teacher candidates explore the research base and theoretical rationales for different approaches to teaching reading and writing, and examine key components of literacy instruction in the different models.  They study and practice methods for assessing learners, and planning instruction in foundational skills, language, speaking and listening, comprehending text, content area literacy, and writing.  Special emphasis is placed on the Readers and Writers Workshop model, in which teachers model reading and writing strategies and guide students’ independent application of strategies to comprehension and composition of texts. This course is part of the second semester series of education courses and 2/3 of the course is held in the field, in a K-6 literacy classroom. Teacher candidates plan and implement literacy lessons and reflect on the impact of their instruction in their field setting. Prerequisite(s): CIED 2070 and CIED 2130
