This course stresses the role of reading, writing, talking, and listen/visual strategies as necessary and inseparable forms of communication in all content areas. The focus of instruction is to help teacher candidates teach students to be life-long learners, using communication strategies to both gather and share information. A thirty-hour (30) field experience in the teacher candidate’s concentration in an AYA setting is required. This experience will include activities such as observing, planning and teaching lessons using content area reading strategies, and keeping a journal reflecting upon classroom observations and activities as they relate to concepts studied in class. Prerequisites: Admission to Teacher Education.
Offered Fall for 3 Semester hours.
