EDUC 505 - Reading in the Content Area

(3 credits)
This graduate course will provide opportunity to expand knowledge and techniques related to reading instruction to demands outside the reading classroom. In so doing, the teacher will learn to assist students in determining purpose for reading and the appropriate approaches for various task demands. The teacher will be able to widen his/her repertoire in children’s and adolescent’s literature and incorporate it into content instruction. Reading/writing activities will also support growth in reading for information, writing outside of the creative writing realm, and building vocabulary and fluency. Teachers will use class discussion, technology exploration, strategy instruction, and case study application to develop skills. Prerequisite(s): EDUC 502 , EDUC 503 .
