COURSE: 52-527 Teaching Reading to the Diverse Learner (3)
The course addresses the teaching of reading to students with diverse learning needs in our schools. They may be students who are culturally or linguistically different, gifted, slow learners or students in special education. The course also examines the sociocultural differences and the diversity of students that affect instruction within the school setting. This course has a 10-hour field work (clinical) component that requires a candidate to observe and reflect on reading instruction in an ELL classroom and reading instruction in a special education or gifted setting.
