EEDUC 6165 Linking Assessment to Teaching: Reading, Writing, and Word Study (K-8)

This course develops the expertise of teachers in systematic observation and analysis of reading, writing, and language behaviors. Through authentic, standardized assessment and the analysis of reading records, writing, and talk, teachers will gain insight into how students are able to process, comprehend, and craft meaningful text. They will also identify the behaviors and understandings essential to the way words and language work, and design literacy instruction that meets the varying needs of all students. Participants will need access to a student at this grade level in order to complete assignments successfully.
