Literacy Development and the Academic Domains

EDU 6310 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Offers students an opportunity to learn how to adapt their instruction to the language needs of the students in their classes. Reading, writing, speaking, and listening are the keys to academic success for students for whom English is not the first language. It is critical to understand the research about early literacy development, vocabulary development, process writing, peer editing, comprehension and metacognition, content reading, and literacy assessment. Students read the research, discuss the theory behind the research findings, and have an opportunity to learn how to apply those findings to the unique content and skill challenges they will face as classroom teachers.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
