Description

This course introduces candidates to learning and literacy theories that underpin prevalent pedagogical practices in the teaching of reading and writing. Students will explore theories of literacy development and the acquisition of reading and writing, as well as the theoretical foundations for a range of instructional approaches related to the dimensions of literacy (phonological awareness [including phonemic awareness], phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing). Historical perspectives of literacy, as well as prominent researchers and theorists, will also be studied. Theoretical paradigms (i.e., bottom-up, top-down, and interactive) will inform candidates’ pedagogy with all students, including advanced, proficient, and striving (formerly known as struggling) readers/writers as well as culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
