Expanding Content Literacy
Let's close the gap and prepare our elementary students for success! The gap - that seemingly small problem evident in elementary classes that looms larger and larger as students move into the secondary grades. The gap that is caused by primary-level students being immersed in narrative text that leaves them unprepared for the challenges of informational text and content-specific vocabulary seen in the secondary grades. This Online course will equip elementary teachers with the background and tools to lay a solid foundation for school children, developing in them the skills they need to be successful with informational text. Traditional format of this course is available upon request.
NOTE: Required textbooks must be purchased separately.
This course is applicable towards the English Language Arts Teaching Certificate.
