Reading on the River
In this course, educators will learn to build upon students’ natural curiosities to develop an environment-based literacy program for students in grades K-12. By connecting research-supported literacy instruction to experiences in the outdoors, educators can create reading and writing activities that are relevant and motivational for students. In the course, educators will study pedagogical skills and strategies that align instruction to local and state literacy standards. Methods, resources, and technology for teaching foundational reading skills and for using informational text, literature, writing, and assessments will be explored.
