Education (EDUC) - Models and Theories of Reading Across the Lifespan

EDUC 5426  Models and Theories of Reading Across the Lifespan


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Students develop theoretical understandings of reading from diverse perspectives (e.g., developmental, sociocultural, psychological, social, emotional, environmental, cognitive) that can be transferred to multiple contexts, texts, and levels of readers. Students explore issues related to teaching and learning reading in formal and informal educational settings, with particular emphasis on evidence- based instructional strategies and assessment techniques that support readers across the lifespan in the development of reading and reading-related skills, literacy and self-efficacy.
