8. EDU 5367.01/Methods for Teaching Literacy

Location: North Rockland High School (North Rockland HS, )

Dates: 7/2/2019 to 8/1/2019

Starting Soon
This course provides students with a research-based introduction to literacy teaching and learning for children in grades K-2. This course, the first in a pair of literacy methods courses, introduces students to the theories, approaches, and methodology of teaching reading and writing in the elementary classroom, with an emphasis placed on reading instruction in the early elementary grades (K-2). A major goal of this course is to help students develop an informed, integrated, and balanced approach to the planning and instruction of reading and the language arts. What is literacy? How is literacy acquired and learned? How is literacy learning best scaffolded? These questions will be part of our ongoing inquiry throughout the semester as we center the experiences of individual children as literacy learners. Drawing upon Vygotsky's sociocultural theories of activity and learning, we will seesaw between theory and practice while learning the importance of elementary educators weaving the two together. Though the full-time classroom teacher rarely has an opportunity to focus entirely on one child, the successful practitioner is grounded in theory and tuned in to the strengths and goals of each young learner. In this course, educators will tend closely to one literacy learner in an effort to build a repertoire of practices that routinely place the details of a child's language, life, and learning at the center of instructional decision-making. Required Texts: "Reading for Real: Teach Students to Read with Power, Intention, and Joy in the K-3 Classrooms"½½½, Collins, K. (2008), Portland, ME: Stenhouse Publishers; "Phonics They Use: Words for Reading and Writing"½½½, Cunningham, P. (2012), New York, Pearson Publishing; "Reading with Meaning"½½½, Miller, D. (2012).

36. EDU 5088.02/Introduction to Students with Learning and Behavior Problems

Location: North Rockland High School (North Rockland HS, )

Dates: 9/9/2019 to 11/25/2019

This course will provide an introduction to the field of learning disabilities and behavior disorders for classroom teachers in both regular and special education. We will identify the social, emotional, and learning characteristics of children having been identified with behavior disorders, neurological impairment, and learning disabilities. A developmental focus, involving both biological and experiential underpinnings of the disorders will further be discussed in order to understand the multiplicity of factors which give rise to the problems children manifest. As a result of the high co-morbidity (co-occurrence) of problems of perception, language, attention, and motivation, and behavior, these will be identified when they relate to the specific disorders. They will not be covered as specific disorders in themselves. In addition, we will consider effective instructional methods for these students as well as relevant behavioral interventions. Goals and objectives, as well as the instructional strategies employed in teaching will be incorporated in the individual education plans (IEP) for individuals demonstrating these problems. Required Text: "Children and Adolescents with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders", by Austin, V. L. & Sciarra, D. T., 2010, Upper Saddle River, NJ.A: Pearson. Requires 12 hours observation.

This on campus course will run as a hybrid. It will examine the need for collaboration between teachers of children with both typical and special education needs. Students will become knowledgeable of state and federal laws which establish special education services (NCLB) as well as accommodations for those individuals who require instructional modifications and do not clearly fit into one of the IDEA classifications (section 504). They will become familiar with the characteristics of the major disability areas identified by law and the modifications of instruction and classroom setting necessary to meet the individual's needs. This will include those practices for planning and designing co-teaching and collaboration which have been shown to be effective in the collaborative setting. Classroom management needs and individualization of instruction of children in the inclusive setting will be addressed with emphasis placed upon the importance of using positive behavioral supports.
