ED 530 - Language and Literacy in a Diverse Classroom

3 credits
This is the first course in a 2 course sequence. It focuses on the historical, theoretical, and practical aspects of teaching reading, writing, speaking, and listening to elementary students in a diverse classroom. Emphasis is on incorporating state frameworks and standards into a program 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, students will explore reading and language arts through readings, discussions, activities, observations, and reflection. The unique needs of English language learners and children with special needs will be addressed throughout the course. 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.
