EDUC 531 Raising Rigor: Applying Close Reading Across the Curriculum in the Age of Common Core

3 Credits

What effect will the Common Core have on the children we teach? In the era of Common Core State Standards, classroom teachers across all curricular disciplines must be teachers of reading, as well as content.  If they can do so efficiently and purposefully, their students will be able to access the information necessary to be truly successful in all subjects.  “But how do I teach reading when I am a _____ teacher?”  In this course, participants will explore the facets of close reading frameworks and discover how to apply them to multiple subject areas.  By using a variety of informational and narrative texts and media on different levels, the end result will be teachers who are confident and competent when helping their students become strong readers, writers, and thinkers who access, use, and apply information skillfully, appropriately, and accurately.
