About:

This course addresses the linguistic, neurological, cognitive, and socio-cultural factors that influence readers and writers. The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, national and state standards in literacy, and high stakes assessments have resulted in more attention placed on the role of phonics in students' reading and writing achievement. Participants study relevant research, theories, and instructional approaches, including technology and multimedia, to support phonics as a fundamental component of effective reading, writing, and spelling programs.

This graduate-level course is 4 weeks To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
