READ 854 - Beyond a Simple View of Reading

Literacy is a complex topic involving many dimensions. Some of these dimensions will be explored in this class as we take our understanding of literacy development, assessment, and instruction beyond merely a Simple View. Candidates will explore the role of ethics and dispositions in literacy assessment and instruction. Candidates will also develop an understanding of the complexities various issues relating to diversity, disability and trauma add to assessing and teaching literacy skills and explore the role family and community connections can play in supporting students' literacy development.
