Course: EED 625B/L. Literacy Assessment and Teaching Strategies and Lab (3/1)

Prerequisite: EED 625AL/SED 625AL. Corequisite: EED 625BL. Additional principles and procedures for the evaluation of reading and writing effectiveness are presented. Each student continues to develop competencies in assessing literacy behavior on an individual basis, as well as in a classroom setting. Students should hone their skills of selecting, scoring and interpreting the results of a comprehensive variety of standardized tests. Similarly, additional principles and procedures for the design and selection of materials, methods and contexts for literacy instruction are presented. Each student will expand the literacy program developed for an individual child based on new assessment findings. Program includes meaning-centered and skill-based activities appropriate for classroom settings. Students should become adept at determining the effectiveness of various instructional strategies as well as confirming/disconfirming their assessment results. Lab: This 1-unit supervised lab experience with children includes parent conferencing and concentrated assessment and instruction in the correction of reading/writing difficulties. Each student is assigned at least one child experiencing problems processing written language for whom the student designs and implements a corrective program. It is suggested that a student continue with the same child he/she worked with in EED/SED 625AL. Case studies demonstrate awareness of psychological, physiological, educational, cultural and linguistic factors in the reading/writing process. (Cross-listed with SED 625B/L.)
