EDU 350 - Literacy in Content Areas: Elementary (1)

Educators must first and foremost recognize the fact that reading and writing, far from being isolated areas of study, touch upon all facets of learning in each and every content area. The major goal of this course, then, is to understand how, as elementary teachers of all content areas, might employ developmentally appropriate literacy strategies to enhance content area learning. Students will become familiar with the Title I laws in Iowa and take a close look at the kind of reading support Title I teachers offer. DOES NOT COUNT TOWARDS THE ELEMENTARY EDUCATION MAJOR Prerequisites: Admittance to the Teacher Preparation Program/Education Department (during the sophomore year) EDU 205 , EDU 215 , EDU 230 , EDU 240  and either EDU 318  or EDU 319  or with permission of instructor. Alternate years.
