ED 624G - Instructional Interventions for Secondary Students (grades 6-12) with Reading Deficiencies


The purpose of the course is to prepare secondary pre-service teacher education candidates to provide evidence-based reading instruction. An emphasis is placed on the results of research and proven methods of instruction for teaching reading to adolescents with reading deficits with a study of the causes of reading disabilities, assessment procedures, and methods for correction. The course stresses a behavioral approach to teaching, as well as the development and implementation of intervention strategies for various populations of adolescents with reading deficits in inclusive settings. Additional topics include modifications and adaptations of materials, effective teaching, learning strategies, lesson planning, assessment, and individualized education programs.
