LIT 509 - Evaluating for Reflective Instruction

Catalog Year 2013-2014

This field-based course will provide the candidate with an appreciation of the “diagnostic” and “assessment” processes that build upon the strengths of the struggling reader/writer with metacognitive strategies for reading and writing. The candidate will be helped to use both informal and formal assessment tools used to evaluate literacy progress and will be introduced to theories of literacy development and individual differences. The candidate will work with a struggling student in a school setting to help acquire a specific understanding of the difficulties confronted by the student in acquiring the literacy skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

PREREQ: Lit 501 and 507.
