School Reading Problems-Writing Intensive

In this course, students learn to teach struggling readers by applying their knowledge of literacy instruction learned in prerequisite coursework. They use assessments and observations to identify students' reading levels. Students are required to use on-going diagnostic teaching techniques to plan, teach, and adjust instruction according to the needs and interests of struggling learners. Process writing is used throughout. As a course requirement, students work in the Rowan Reading Clinic. Students tutor a K-12 student for 20 hours and write a final report.
