EDUC 6541: Reading to Learn: Fluency and Comprehension (3)
Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
This course is based on the understanding that fluency enables comprehension, and that good readers are purposeful and active. Using developmental stages of reading development (emergent, beginning, and instructional), course participants first learn the different components of fluency, and strategies designed to develop accurate, fluid reading. Next, a sequence of comprehension instruction is covered, as well as critical comprehension strategies. Last, the course examines motivation/reading incentive programs designed to encourage students' reading.
