Supervised Clinical Practice In Reading

Students in this course apply diagnostic, reflective teaching procedures in order to teach struggling readers in a clinical setting. They select materials and instructional strategies that meet the specific needs of the child. Emphasis is placed on on-going, diagnostic teaching that integrates the language arts in instruction that adjusts to the needs and interests of struggling readers. Students will conduct informal reading assessments at the end of the clinic session in order to write a formal report that includes assessment data; students' strengths and needs; and recommendations to parents, classroom teachers, and future tutors for further instruction.
