Course Description

This course emphasizes reading approaches, theories, strategies, diagnosis, and remediation techniques to enable teachers to become more proficient in the teaching of reading. In addition to the state standards for reading, particular emphasis will be placed on the integration of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) for the early and middle childhood generalist certificate. 

This course is designed to provide the student with information relevant to the reading skills, materials, and practices of effective teaching systems used by readers and the interactive nature of the reading process.  The focus will identify contemporary issues and develop an awareness of current, effective elementary reading practices.
