CSL 560 - Diagnosis and Recommendations for Literacy Processes

This course provides an overview of formal and informal assessment tools and practices that measure literacy development of students. Participants will begin to work closely with individual students to assess literacy competencies to plan and implement instruction using ten practicum hours. They will also explore research and practice relating to differential literacy achievement as they begin to synthesize testing data to formulate diagnostic hypotheses for designing an instructional program for individual students based upon the cognitive-constructivist perspective. The role of cognitive modeling will be emphasized as teachers demonstrate how to reason to understand text. Ten practicum hours are required for working with a struggling reader in the primary grades.
