Reading and Literacy I

This introductory course will emphasize the foundations of the science of teaching reading and literacy. Teacher candidates will explore how reading, literacy, and cognitive processes are developed. Fifteen hours of clinical observation will provide time observations of children and teachers in field settings to connect theory with actual practice. The focus of this course is an examination of how to implement TEKS when facilitating literacy acquisition and development. The course includes teaching approaches, text genres, writing, listening, speaking, linguistics, cueing systems, phonemic awareness, phonics, word recognition, vocabulary development, spelling, fluency, and instructional resources. Prerequisites: Minimum overall GPA of 2.50 and must have passed TSI.
