ED 8653 Literacy: All Areas

Three hours
Literacy: All Areas is a course designed to prepare and challenge candidates for the responsibility of meeting the literacy needs of all students in the classroom, regardless of the content area represented. Candidates will understand the main elements of literacy and how these elements affect success at any level and any content area. Candidates will be exposed to the influence of phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension on student engagement; learners will examine the Common Core, the Bloom Taxonomy, and some basic assessment techniques for literacy within the sub-contexts of listening, speaking, writing, and reading. Candidates will create lesson plans, with one JBU classroom “teach.” Field experience required.
