EDUC 545 - Literacy Learning after the Early Years: Middle School Children, Adolescents and Adults

(3)
online. This course supports educator’s literacy development of middle school students, adolescents and adult literacy learners. Instructional emphases shift from the earlier years. Older literacy learners engage wide-ranging text forms and specialized vocabulary needs. Their school learning and work lives depend on abilities to interact purposefully and knowledgeably with print, digital or electronic texts. Increasingly self-directed, older learners need reading abilities to select apt comprehension strategies; respond critically to a reading; determine the applications of a text to other experience or situations; as well as determine objectives in their production of texts. Course participants: classroom teachers, coaches, resource room educators, community programmers, and adult literacy instructors, develop their professional knowledge and pedagogies to assist viewers and readers become more critical and discriminating readers and producers of texts.
