Students learn about language arts curriculum including the development of a unit of study that addresses the development of children’s language and thinking skills, written communication and grammar, listening and speaking skills, spelling and handwriting. Lesson plans, authentic student data-driven informal and formal assessments,differentiated learning activities, the integration of technology, and working with culturally diverse learners, including English Language Learners will also be a focus. This course requires non-credit field placement experience that provides for implementation and assessment of the student’s unit.
