EDUC 503 - Reading Foundations

(3 credits)
The last decade has witnessed intense debate in the field of reading. In order to understand and appreciate the information that is available to teachers in the area of reading, it is necessary to have a sound foundation in the process and development of reading, both from a historical perspective and through the current literature. This class will provide that foundation so that teachers can develop a critical and analytical stance in evaluating trends and reports in the field to insure that sound, effective instruction is provided for every child. Students will also develop a repertoire of effective methods modeled on research-based best practices.
