EDE434B Literacy Teaching: Urban Settings

Provides an opportunity to experience teaching literacy in an urban setting. Under the supervision of Warner faculty, interns work with elementary students at John James Audubon School #33, supporting literacy learning in a multitude of ways, including selecting and interpreting assessment and diagnostic tools; determining student strengths and learning styles; developing individualized literacy plans; planning and implementing meaningful, engaging, culturally relevant lessons; choosing appropriate literacy resources and materials; and providing strategic, appropriate literacy intervention. Interns apply their knowledge of theory and research in a practical setting, gain experience in providing reading, writing, and word study instruction, and develop confidence and skill in their teaching abilities. Interns commit to a minimum of six hours a week, including a one-hour seminar class following a schedule set in advance by the instructor. This internship can be repeated multiple semesters.
