3 hours
This class will focus on professional and philosophical principles for the selection, analysis, and evaluation of a wide range of print, digital, and online texts from various genres in order to meet the reading and/or listening interests and text complexity needs of children and young adults. Choice, motivation, and scaffolded support to optimize students’ learning to read and write will be addressed. K-12 teachers and librarians will be prepared to develop and utilize a literacy curriculum that will positively impact students’ knowledge, beliefs, and engagement with diverse and equitable texts. Assessment of knowledge and skills will include demonstration of literacy skills appropriate to the course.  Each candidate will provide written documentation of appropriate planning, implementation, and assessment to accompany the demonstration.
