Advanced Literacy Studies
This course will explore current research on children’s language acquisition, and the teaching, learning and assessment of reading (including phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and text comprehension); instructional approaches for developing children’s concepts of print, grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting; and strategies for teaching and assessing the composition of digital and multi-modal texts. Students will learn how to interpret school-based and system-wide literacy data and to consider related issues of literacy practices in the home, child language development, the diverse language backgrounds of students, intercultural awareness and inclusiveness, in order to make informed decisions about student literacy needs.
