In this course, candidates will further their comprehension of the relationship between social emotional learning and literacy. Students will closely examine a range of different strategies for teaching reading available to the secondary education teacher.
We will examine a wide range of instructional methods to support the specific development of grade 6-12 learners experiencing difficulty with reading. In addition, the course focuses on the use and value of reading assessments, differentiation within the classroom, and the overall benefits of teaching literacy across content areas. In this course, we will investigate topics such as: fluency, decoding, comprehension, balanced literacy, close reading, scaffolding, differentiation, brain breaks, mindfulness, etc. Furthermore, we will discuss how to utilize specific reading strategies and skills within diverse content areas, as well as how to respond to the social and emotional needs of those specific students with reading disabilities in our classrooms.
