EDUC356 Integrated Literacy 3: Designing Literacy Experiences in the Classroom

 Integrated Literacy III: Designing Literacy Experiences in the Classroom does a deep dive into the reading and writing process, looking at the approach to literacy employed in the entire classroom and focusing on strategies to optimize learning for each child, and the group as a whole.  This course revisits the content in Integrated Literacy 2, which taught the reading process through a comprehensive case study of a single learner, and expands on this knowledge to address an entire classroom, with each child needing unique scaffolds to achieve growth. Candidates will understand programmatic as well as student centered approaches and compare them through several lenses in order to make thoughtful choices in the classroom. The culminating assignment, a Literacy Unit Plan Using Native American Literature, will be shared with each other to expand each candidate’s teaching repertoire during student teaching and the early years of induction, and also with the Montana Office of Public Instruction: Indian Education Division, to be potentially published contributing to the profession.
