EDUC 506 - Strategies in Reading and Writing

(3 credits)
This graduate course examines the issues related to the development of efficient and independent readers. Through a study of cognitive strategies, the teacher will learn how to assist students in monitoring their own performance, utilizing resources/techniques available to them when attempting various kinds of print materials for a variety of purposes. Teachers will also learn to enable students to expand their strategies to a wide range of reading endeavors, especially in content reading and writing. Teachers will evaluate commercial programs to determine how they support growth of independence as well as supplemental materials in print and in the media and determine how to match approaches to the style and need of individual students. This course will also involve the teacher in collegial consultation. Students will be asked to complete critical evaluation of materials, develop a repertoire of strategies in reading and writing, and develop skills in teaching students about strategy use. Prerequisite(s): EDUC 502 , EDUC 503 .
