RDG 504 - Family Literacy Connection

This course explores the role of the literacy coach/teacher in supporting the five standards considered essential for reading professionals: knowledge of the foundations of reading and writing processes and instruction, use of a wide range of instructional practices approaches, methods, and curriculum materials to support reading and writing instruction, use of a variety of assessment tools and practices to plan and evaluate effective reading instruction, create a literate environment that fosters reading and writing, view professional development as a career-long effort and responsibility. It also focuses upon the role of home school connections presenting a wide variety of school-based and organization sponsored programs and initiatives that will address these questions as practitioners learn how others are responding to the literacy needs of students and families. Participants will gain insight into how to develop new programs as well as conduct community discourse on the nature of family literacy, how it works, and how it can support student learning.
