EDU 234 - Reading & Writing Connections for All Learners K-8

4 Credit(s)
What happens when young readers write? What happens when young writers read? Using a reading and writing workshop model designed for the K-8 setting, students in this course will be immersed in authentic, process-based experiences in responding to, analyzing, and writing about texts that are commonly used in the elementary and middle school settings. The central experiential learning outcome of this course will be an understanding of the complex ways in which the reading process supports development of writing skills, while immersion in the writing process in turn supports development of reading proficiency. Emphasis will be placed on the composing process, and students will write for a wide range of purposes. Students will carefully examine methods for the development and support of an understanding of grammar and writing conventions, in elementary age students, and in their own writing as well. Students will be assessed with quizzes, reflections on research articles, literature circles, research papers, and observation form. $5 Course Fee.
