RDLT-52700 Teaching Reading to the Diverse Learner

The course addresses reading instruction for students with diverse learning needs in our schools. Candidates will develop an understanding of the ways in which diversity influences the reading and writing development of all students and will examine differentiated instructional strategies and materials to support students, especially those that struggle with reading and writing. This course has a 10 hour field work (clinical) component that requires a candidate to observe and reflect on reading instruction in classrooms with differentiated instruction.
