ED 652 - Secondary Literacy

Minimum Credit(s) Awarded: 3
Maximum Credit(s) Awarded: 3

This course is designed to serve as an introduction for secondary educators into the dynamics of content area literacy theories and practices, grounded in the concept that every secondary content-area teacher is a teacher of literacy. The course will include studying 21st Century conceptualizations of what literacy is and how literacy practices are specialized for specific purposes, environments and content areas, including the context experienced by secondary ELLs. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the interconnectedness of reading, writing and thinking and the need to explicitly provide instruction and modeling for each to support student success, as well as provide resources, strategies and approaches to differentiation and problem-solving to support all students as they transition from the learning to read focus of elementary school to the reading to learn focus of middle school and high school core content classes where literacy instruction becomes the essential means to help students master core content.

Offered Fall, Spring

Prerequisite(s): None.
