@SECD 361 - English Language Arts: Grades 5-12

4 Credit(s)

Introduction to teaching literacy (reading, writing, speaking and listening) in the English Language Arts classroom, grades 5-12. Focused studies will include: developmental considerations of middle childhood (grades 5-9) and adolescence (grades 7-12) and their relationship to language acquisition, English language arts curricula, and state and national standards at the two development levels. Common threads in the two areas of focused studies will include 1) student-centered literacy and 2) language arts curriculum and instruction which integrate the literacy skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening to provide for the learning needs, interests, and abilities of all students, including learners acquiring the English language arts as a second language and students with special learning needs. Resources for teaching ELA available through computer technology will be explored and criteria for evaluating these resources and software will be reviewed and applied. Fall.

Prerequisite(s): ANTH 203 , COMM 201 , COMP 202 , EDLS 349 , and SECD 210  and 12 credits in Literature/Writing major.
