EDUC 6545 - Advanced Pedagogical Content Knowledge: Language Arts 4-6

Hours: 2
This course examines language arts concepts emphasized in the ODE standards for the intermediate (4-6) grades, including oral/visual communication, vocabulary, comprehension, self-monitoring, reading/writing informational, technical and persuasive text, literary elements, the writing process, narrative, formal/informal, and informational writing; literary response; spelling and writing conventions, and the research process. Instruction and pedagogical exploration is grounded in constructivist, psycholinguistic, and sociocultural theories of learning. Students use parts of the ‘assess-plan-teach-reflect/assess’ cycle and apply relevant ODE 4-5 content knowledge to plan an integrated language arts lesson plan for a student in the 4th, 5th, or 6th-grade. Students conduct small-scale research of a topic related to language arts instruction and give a short presentation of their findings. Prerequisites: Middle Childhood License or permission of instructor.
