ELED 511 - Theory and Practice in Teaching Reading

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: Admission to the MEd in Elementary Education (Initial Licensure) program and completion of ELED 510
A thorough explanation is given of the social-psycho linguistic view of reading and its practical application in the elementary classroom. The acquisition of literacy will be explored through alphabetic principle, guided reading techniques, self-monitoring, teacher-child interactions and a variety of assessments. Students will design, implement and reflect on research-based elementary level reading lessons. The English/Language Arts Curriculum Framework will serve as a guide for classroom instruction.
