This course is the second of a pair of courses that provides a research-based introduction to literacy teaching and learning for children in the elementary grades. The course examines in depth the theories, approaches, and methodology of teaching reading and writing in the elementary classroom, with a special focus on literacy teaching in the upper elementary grades (3-6). Emphasis will be on helping candidates develop an informed, integrated, and balanced approach to the planning and instruction of reading, writing, listening, and speaking, and on extending their knowledge of children's literature in a diverse society. The course will give you a vision of what is possible in 3-6 reading/writing classrooms. It will give you strategies and concepts to draw on as you teach, the lens to understand and respond to what children show you when they read and write, resources to support your lifelong learning, and opportunities to practice and receive coaching on essential teaching moves. I have designed the course so that it also gives you invitations to design and redesign curriculum for reading/writing workshops, opportunities to read the ideas of major theorists in language education, and chances to gain knowledge of constructivist practices in language arts. Our focus will alternate between the teaching of writing and the teaching of reading.
