GE 6027 - Reading and Writing Across the Curriculum


This course emphasizes the interdisciplinary approach to all curriculum areas and their related importance to the Reading and Writing process. Students will explore the interconnections of language and literacy to build a knowledge base and understanding of how children learn to read and write in the elementary stages and progress into independent readers and writers in the pper grades. The rationale for this course is two-fold: 1) learning the language arts is important because the elements are powerful tools for learners to create and share personal meaning, and 2) teaching the language arts is critical because the components represent powerful potentials for learners to understand and transform their social worlds. Course content includes a comprehensive approach for educators who are seeking innovative and practical methods targeting best practices for teaching reading and writing across the curriculum spectrum. Students will develop the necessary competencies to understand and implement highly effective strategies that have been thoroughly researched in educational literature pertaining to present day classroom teachers.
