Idaho Comprehensive Literacy Course
This course is designed to meet the intent of Idaho Code § 33-1207A and will provide practical application of the Literacy Standards and Idaho’s Comprehensive Literacy Plan. Educators will identify best practices in instruction and assessment of reading. Current research in brain-compatible teaching/learning and learning theories as applied to reading will be examined. Participants will learn how language is acquired, develop lessons in explicit and embedded phonics and phonemic awareness. They will also develop lessons in comprehension and vocabulary development. In addition, practicing educators will identify correlations between district adopted texts and the Comprehensive Literacy Plan. Web-sites relevant to literacy-development and the implications of technology will be explored.
This course is offered completely online and self-paced for your convenience throughout the year by the Lee Pesky Learning Center. Register for the course by clicking the “Enroll” button.
