EDU 515 - Introduction to Elementary Literacy Practices II


Prerequisites: EDU 507 
This course builds on EDU 507 - Introduction to Elementary Literacy Practices I . In Literacy II, participants continue their exploration of teaching the English Language Arts. The primary focus is the research and practice related to writing instruction including: (1) the forms and types of writing, (2) the process of writing, and (3) the English language arts conventions. A second focus of this course is performance-based literacy assessment. Participants learn to design and implement a reading/writing performance assessment based on the Rhode Island Grade Level Expectations (GLE’s). Field experiences include tutoring through a voluntary reading program and a one-time visit to a public school to conduct a literacy performance assessment. Students must also demonstrate competence in using instructional technology.
