ED528 - Theory and Practice in Literacy


This course provides a survey of historical and current literacy theories and models that have influenced the teaching of reading across time to the present. Foundational knowledge of key literacy domains, language systems, diverse reader profiles, and the science of reading is introduced. Emphasis is placed on the reading component of literacy and language learning. This course addresses the development of teachers’ own theoretical orientations to literacy practices: how they develop and change over a career, and how they are reflected in the classroom and connected to various literacy theories and models. The role of and professional resources for reading/literacy specialists are explored.
