EDTC 694 Linking Literature and Composition with Content Area Instruction (3)
This course explores the idea that all teachers are teachers of reading. Students learn to authentically connect the CA Reading/Language Arts Framework and Standards with specific content area frameworks. Students review and evaluate child and adolescent literature selections to supplement textbooks and make content area material accessible to all levels of readers within the classroom. They learn the value of writing as a form of reflective processing and understanding for single subject students. Various forms of writing including note-taking, observation, reflective writing, learning logs, and double entry journal are explored and evaluated using rubrics created by the candidates.
