This course examines literacy assessments and data evidence that best inform instructional practice in grades K-6 so all children can be successful readers. Teacher candidates will explore assessment systems that include screeners, diagnostic tools, progress monitoring, and formative and summative assessments used to evaluate children’s reading capabilities. Candidates will study and interpret student data used to diagnose and treat reading problems in elementary children who have demonstrated reading difficulties in order to provide evidence based intervention strategies that move learners toward independence and self-regulation. Candidates not enrolled in Internship I will be placed in a public school classroom (K-6) for a 10 hour field placement where they will be required to assist the mentor teacher, work with students who have a demonstrated reading difficulty, reflect upon the experience, and complete required assignments. Prerequisite: Conditional Admission to the Pat Walker Teacher Education Program, Senior standing or permission of the instructor.
