ETC 536 Literacy Content and Practice

The Literacy Content and Practice Block contains outcomes specific to teaching concepts and methods in all English Language Arts Common Core State Standards (reading, writing, literature, language, listening, and speaking). Candidates are introduced to another field-based internship experience in a K-8 classroom where they design, construct, and practice developing learning activities, experiences, and assessment tools to promote literacy in a K-8 setting. Additionally, candidates have multiple opportunities to research effective literacy practices, design lesson plans and a sequenced learning segment to support a diversity of learners with literacy development, and participate in a literature portfolio project to build an awareness of culture and the quality and complexity of many different genres.
