ED 330 - Language And Literacy in A Diverse Classroom

3 Unit(s)
This semester three-unit course focuses on the historical, theoretical, and practical aspects of teaching reading, writing, speaking, and listening to K to 12th grade students in a diverse classroom that consists on a full range of learners. Emphasis is on incorporating state Frameworks and Standards into both general and special education programs that also draws on children's real-life experiences and knowledge about language. In a language environment that parallels that of a dynamic elementary school classroom, candidates will explore reading and language arts through readings, discussions, activities, observations, and reflection. The unique needs of English language learners and students with special needs will be addressed through learning how to organize and manage differentiated reading instruction. Key topics include the reading process, phonemic awareness and phonics, elements of a balanced reading program including guided reading and the writing process, lesson planning, inclusion, student assessments, children's literature, enrichment versus deficit models of schooling, and analysis of classroom discourse. Candidates will become skillful at implementing curriculum, instruction, assessment, and management strategies that relate to integrating reading and language arts across the content areas.
