38-6231 Methods Teach Read/Lang Art


This course introduces reading and language arts as central activities in the school curriculum. Teacher candidates explore and contrast approaches to the teaching of reading. The various components of reading and language arts are defined, including pre-reading skills, vocabulary development, the process of producing and understanding print, reading for comprehension, development of oral language with its relationship to reading and writing, and connections between reading and study skills. Candidates develop proficiency in designing oral and written language learning activities, diagnosis and assessment processes, organization of a language arts program for students at different levels of development, development of materials for learning, applications across all content areas of the curriculum, the context of the bilingual-bicultural child, and adapting instruction for diverse learners. Teacher candidates are required to observe language arts lessons in P-8 classroom settings to extend their understanding of effective language arts teaching.
