EDP 625 Reading: Advanced Instructional Methods
3 hours; 3 credits
Advanced examination of current reading theories and instructional practices, with emphasis on improving the reading comprehension of students with disabilities. Students gain an in-depth understanding of the interactive nature of reading, the role of language development in reading acquisition, and the connections of language to students’ reading and writing difficulties. Issues addressed include developmentally appropriate instruction, cultural and linguistic diversity, and literature-based instruction. Twenty hours of fieldwork in a variety of educational settings increase students’ knowledge of activities and techniques that enhance reading comprehension.
