Program overview

In your courses, you will explore basic principles of elementary education curricula as well as a full spectrum of instructional strategies and assessment methods. For example, “Social Foundations of American Education” looks at the development of the American school system in a rapidly changing environment, with emphasis on the relationship between education and society, while “Curriculum Development for the Classroom Teacher” examines historical, theoretical and practical considerations of the purpose, content and organization of educational experiences (including non-school settings). Coursework in literacy covers reading comprehension, selecting appropriate literature for classroom learning, remedial instruction, and current trends in testing and reading techniques. Field work will enable you to work with individual children in classroom settings. In service to our local community, the Department of Special Education and Literacy offers an on-campus clinic for children with reading challenges: the Literacy and Learning Development Center.
