ED 531 - Capstone: Effective Reading Literacy Programs

Credits: 3

Prerequisite: 18 hours in literacy be completed prior to this course

Effective Reading Programs is the capstone course for the Master of Education in Reading/Literacy program. This course has two primary goals: 1) to develop a clear understanding of what constitutes balanced reading/literacy instruction across the developmental continuum and 2) to consider what can be done to improve reading/literacy achievement in our schools. The first goal will focus on what is known about the development of effective reading/literacy programs from the literature. The second goal will include the study of effective reading/literacy programs through an examination of the school and the classroom. Case studies on school change will be studied and participants will consider how schools/districts can improve their reading instruction.
