Course

PK12-READSP

Reading Specialist

Reading Part 3 is designed to meet the professional needs of educators wishing to assume leadership responsibilities in literacy education.

The course considers how educators can use their understanding of the research literature about literacy learning and instruction to build professional learning communities crucial to effecting school-wide changes in literacy practices and materials. Close attention is paid to both obstacles to schools' changing their literacy instructional practices and to approaches that facilitate schools to adopt instructional procedures and materials that improve students' reading, writing, and learning.
