Develop an in-depth knowledge about how to define, promote, and assess an effective culture of literacy at the classroom, school, district, and community levels. In this course, participants review the foundational beginnings of our national culture of literacy. Students read and analyze current research to discuss its application in promoting a rich culture of literacy across all domains of language (reading, writing, listening, and speaking), in a variety of contexts, and with a variety of texts (expository, informational, and narrative). Course content also considers ways in which the language and literacy experiences of all students can contribute to a culture of literacy which honors students' abilities, skills, and diverse backgrounds.
