examine the classroom environment and understand best teaching
practices. Develop a sound foundation of literacy theory, assessment,
and practices such as Guided Reading, literature study groups, readers'
workshop, writers' workshop, guided writing, interactive writing, genre
study, and word study. You'll observe
and analyze videotaped teaching, and learn how to use language that
supports teacher development. Earn 24 hours of literacy professional development.
