ED 4020 - Fundamentals of Literacy Learning


(ED 6020)
(3)
This course examines the process of lifelong literacy from birth to adulthood. In-depth reading and writing instruction on strategies used by proficient readers are developed to help students gain success in their meaning-making ability and to become linguistically empowered. Diverse forms of literacy are investigated. An inquiry-based approach to content areas focuses on using the four language cueing systems to transact meaning by reading, writing, speaking, listening, mediating, and viewing. This approach is presented within the context of how to build a community of literate learners in today’s society through a literature-rich reader’s and writer’s workshop.

Concurrent: with ED 4021  for Elementary Education majors only.
