EDC 500 - Current Issues in Reading and Writing

This course is designed to provide educators and non-educators with a broad understanding and better prospective of current issues that are facing the literacy community, i.e. students, teachers, schools and our nation as a whole. This course will focus on a lively discourse and reflection of many issues currently facing public education, literacy instruction, and teacher reform, etc. The course will serve as a platform for bridging the gap between goals, principles, theories, philosophies, and methodologies in the educational process and the real world classroom, teaching, learning, and technology. By discussing educational issues, changes, and emerging trends, it is hoped to expand and enlighten the practitioner’s outlook, thought processes, understanding, and repertoire of knowledge, attitudes, skills, and strategies when faced with those issues.
