CSPED 3300 Developing Accessible Instruction for Struggling Readers and Writers

This course explores the challenges experienced by students who struggle to achieve grade-level proficiency in reading and writing. Emphasis will be placed on understanding and analyzing the range of difficulties encountered by struggling readers in order to design and deliver appropriate and accessible instruction. The focus on nurturing and extending the literacy learning of special needs students in inclusive classrooms will require that issues relevant to the diverse nature of this population be addressed throughout the course. Particular attention will be paid to the academic challenges of English language learners. The foundational knowledge acquired in CEDUC 2401 (Literacy Learning) is a prerequisite for course content. Students will both review and extend their understanding of the principles of instruction in reading, writing, listening, and oral communication in school settings.
