This 3 credit graduate-level course is grounded in Dr. Hollis Scarborough’s Reading Rope Model which illustrates how all the different reading/language processes are needed in order to become a proficient reader. Proficiency includes the development of phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, and reading fluency, which includes: oral skills and comprehension.  The Literacy Development section of the course thoroughly examines the changes in the brain as a child learns to read.  The various reading difficulties faced by students, and possible interventions, are analyzed in several of the course sections, including Literacy Development. Research shows that explicit, direct instruction of skills along a predetermined continuum is essential for students to acquire the skills to become a proficient reader by the end of 3rd grade.  Examples and suggested approaches are explored throughout the course. This includes specific suggestions for students with Developmental Language Disorder, Dyslexia, and English Language Learners.   An essential piece of ensuring proficiency in all readers is dedication to the assessment cycle which is also discussed in all sections.  All aspects of the course have been grounded in research based practices.  Experts in the field of reading, child development, and literacy development have been quoted and cited in all course sections.  

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  1. Know and identify phases in the typical developmental progression of oral language, phonological skills, word recognition, spelling, fluency, comprehension and written expression.
  2. Apply the science of reading and its importance to your classroom practices.
