ED 6020 - Fundamentals of Literacy Learning


(ED 4020)
(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. The graduate-level course requires independent accelerated additional coursework appropriate for the graduate level.

Prerequisite or Concurrent: Concurrently with ED 6021 for Elementary Education majors only.
