EDR560 - Clinical Experience in Literacy Instruction (6 cr.)

Coursework will focus on the influences of motivation and prior knowledge, phonological awareness, word recognition, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, metacognition, writing, spelling, and reading to learn. During the 30-hour tutorial, candidates will work with one or more students at the Birth-Grade 6 or Grades 5-12 level. Candidates will establish rapport, gain knowledge of students' literacy interests, and use informal reading inventories and/or an array of emergent literacy, phonological awareness, and phonics assessments. Candidates will interpret the results of all assessments and create, implement, monitor, evaluate, and modify individualized instructional plans based on the student's specific strengths, needs, and progress in literacy. Candidates will compose detailed reports and will confer with children and parents/guardians in order to facilitate continued support and progress. (Summer).
