Course Detail
Course Components:
This 3 credit graduate course sponsored by the University of Utah Reading Clinic is designed to help educators develop an introductory understanding of the theory and practice of intervention for struggling readers. By participating in a clinical practicum, educators will extend their knowledge of the following topics: guided reading at instructional level, work identification, automaticity, fluency, comprehension, textual scaffolding, motivation, and using assessment as a guide for pacing instruction. Most importantly, educators will be expected to use their knowledge of these topics to provide ongoing, one-on-one assessment and intervention for two struggling readers between second and sixth grades. This course meets daily for 3 weeks during the summer.
