CSL 620 - Assessing and Addressing the Literacy Needs of Readers and Writers in Middle School and High School


This course addresses the literacy needs of middle school and high school students who struggle with reading and writing. There is an emphasis on assessment and instructional practices that promote growth in literacy for a diverse group of students based upon observation, collaboration, and the interpretation of data. The course focuses on current theory of reading and writing processes, and the demands made upon readers and writers in different subject areas and contexts. Students are required to work for ten practicum hours with a struggling reader at the middle school or high school level for students seeking certification in Literacy from Grade 5 – Grade 12.
