Building upon competencies developed in READ204, the prerequisite course in which learning to read is explored, students in the Intermediate Reading course will examine methods used to support reading to learn and enjoy by developing a comprehensive understanding of methods for scaffolding the development of metacognitive strategies that support reading comprehension across the curriculum. Students will examine the research that underlies a strategic reading program; discover how to organize the classroom for effective scheduling, student grouping, behavior management, and optimal reading structure; learn effective assessment techniques; discover methods and resources for matching readers and books; and develop an understanding of methods used to address the specific needs of struggling intermediate level readers.
