The theoretical basis of literacy and approaches, methods, and techniques for teaching literacy skills in diverse urban school settings, will be explored. Training is provided in a variety of instructional methodologies including strategies designed for culturally and linguistically diverse students, ELD, and SDAIE. The course will provide students with opportunities to acquire knowledge, skills, and the ability to deliver comprehensible instruction to English Learners and to develop lessons promoting students’ access and achievement in relation to state adopted academic content standards. Strategies are grounded in theories of language acquisition and the state standards for English Language Arts.
