EDUC 655 - Examination of Literacy Programs


Credits: Three (3)
This course will help candidates deeply explore current and relevant models and methods used to teach reading in elementary and secondary schools.  Examples include literacy programs and methods that have been used to support early literacy, ESL, information literacy, and family literacy.   Candidates will practice training peers in various research-based literacy methods and models.  The candidate will leave this course with the skills needed to compose both individual, and school-wide literacy action plans focused on research-based reading methods that support literacy development, current teaching practices, and the overall effectiveness of literacy programs.
