EDU-561 Biliteracy Development

4 semester credits
This course will provide an overview of biliteracy development theory, instructional practices, and assessment methods of the reading process. Students will explore ways of applying this theoretical knowledge to pedagogical practices and assessment tools for students learning to speak, read, and write in two languages. Students will examine and evaluate the merits of competing paradigms in the area of reading. As a result of this examination students will understand the historical and epistemological context for each paradigm. The major contributors to reading-process theory are Drs. Kenneth S. Goodman, Frank Smith, and Katheryn H. Au. Students will examine the theoretical constructs of reading and the social, cultural, and linguistic processes from these theoreticians. Students will analyze other scholars’ applied theories and interpretations and scholarly works related to the study of reading as a process. The curriculum will demonstrate how theory, pedagogy, and assessment impact the development of proficient biliterate students.
