Literacy Across the Curriculum (15 hours)

“I was pleased with all of the new resources and ideas that I will be able to bring into the classroom for teaching reading. Thanks!”

Reading should be a meaningful activity that is focused on  comprehension and that results in understanding. When students struggle with a specific subject matter the underlying reason is nearly also identified as under developed reading skills. The strategies in this course are imperative for all educators to help their students become proficient readers.

SECTION A: Reading Across the Curriculum, helps teachers understand how to assess reading skills in the classroom and plan instruction accordingly. When every day teaching is carefully designed around this type of data it means that all students can learn and grow.

In SECTION B: Tackling Tough Text, equips educators to empower their students with confidence when handling tough text. Strategies to break down, engage and interact with the text are all explained in detail. Reading is a complex cognitive process that develops cognitive skills.

SECTION C: The Cognitive Skills section explores and explains difficulties associated with learning to reading while introducing strategies for dealing with these issues and reducing the gap.
