Instructional Interventions in Reading for Adolescents and English Language Learners

EDUCATION 5253

Education 5253 is the first of two courses designed to increase the ability of secondary school teacher candidates to support literacy development for middle and high school students. Strategies of instructional intervention will be taught, modeled, and observed. The theoretical base of educational research for literacy intervention is at the core of understanding purpose, validity, and implementation of instructional intervention strategies. Additional purposes are to address differences among readers and texts and to understand methods of reading assessment for adolescents and the English Language Learner (ELL). The reading process, difficulties in reading and English language learning, instruction in reading beyond elementary education, and the role of the teacher in reading instruction and assessment will be important topics in this course. Prerequisite: admission to the Teacher Education program.
