This course is designed to prepare teachers of reading to promote and sustain reading competencies of elementary learners. Teachers of reading will investigate the reading process and strategies that are appropriate for classroom implementation. Teachers will also explore literature resources, with an emphasis on diverse children’s literature, that support elementary students’ reading development. Upon completion, teachers will be able to select and incorporate instructional strategies into the curriculum; and model reading strategies for students in their classrooms.
