Times: Fridays 6:00-10:00pm; Saturdays 8:30am-4:30pm; Sundays 8:30am-3:30pm

This course focuses on identifying and developing appropriate instructional strategies in the teaching of literacy components across the curriculum. We will explore the principles of inclusion, the application of instructional strategies, and curricular adaptations that are most effective in both general and special education settings. This course provides a bridge between the principles of inclusion and educational implementation by exploring and applying instructional strategies and curricular adaptations that are most effective in content area classrooms within the general education setting. The difference between content area reading and disciplinary literacy will be explored. RtI and differentiated instructions strategies will be presented.
