RDLT-54400 Instruction and Resources for Developing Multiliteracies

This course will focus on ways in which teachers can foster multiliterate practices in the classroom. Emphasis will be placed on the role of the reading professional in supporting and leading the selection and development of multimodal practices and materials for reading, writing, and meaning making. In particular, candidates will learn how to organize for writing instruction and provide in-depth instruction for all students, particularly those who struggle and English language learners. The changing role of technology in literacy instruction and assessment will be examined, with a critical stance toward the variety and use of technology resources. Candidates will evaluate how writing and technology are implemented to enhance student learning.
