MEDU 563 - Diagnostic Reading Instruction

4.00 credit hours
Students are introduced to the nature of literacy development and the learning difficulties children may face as they develop as readers. The focus of the course is on the interactive view of reading ability and disability, which suggests that reading is the process of constructing meaning through interaction between the reader, the text and the context of the reading situation. Studentsare exposed to a variety of alternative teaching strategies and materials to help students solve their problems with reading. Emphasis is placed on a holistic and ongoing approach to the diagnostic process and the relationship between diagnostic assessment and instructional planning. Students may not receive credit for both EDUC 463 and MEDU 563.

Prerequisite(s): MEDU 562 . Concurrent enrollment in MEDU 564 .
