EDUC 551 - Reading Methods: II Elementary

Credits: 3 (three)
This course delves more deeply into the study of the contemporary concepts of teaching reading at the elementary level. Students build upon what they have learned in EDUC 331/531 to discover how to assess literacy skills in the areas of language acquisition, phonological/phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Students learn how to use formative and summative assessments effectively to plan for and deliver instruction that enhances the success of all
students. Students will learn classroom best practices to differentiate and support students who have learning gaps in these literacy areas. Students will continue to explore strategies to address the needs of English language learners. This course taken at the graduate level requires additional readings and assignments.
