LYST 242 - Literacy Practicum: Assessing the Complexity of Student Learning (Birth Through Grade 6)

Semester Hours: 3
This practicum provides participants with the opportunity to establish a critical site of inquiry for the study of ethnographic approaches to literacy assessment. Participants develop biographic literacy profiles by using close-grained observations of literacy processes (ethnographic assessment, miscue analysis, retrospective miscue analysis and strategy lessons) to determine how individuals use literacy to solve problems in community and school settings. Participants develop and put into practice a student advocacy model of instructional assessment that values ethnic and linguistic diversity. Emphasis on grades K-6. A 30-hour practicum at the Saltzman Reading/Writing Learning Clinic is required. 

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Completion of Phase I Literacy Studies courses and LYST 240, 241.
