|LTRC 901 - Integrating the Language Arts|
Addresses research and practice relative to the fundamental principles of teaching the language
arts using an integrated approach. Using a literature-based model, emphasis will be placed on
the writing process and the reading-writing connection. Learning strategies, instructional methods
and materials, and evaluation techniques will be integrated throughout the course. Students
will create a portfolio demonstrating their competence as teachers of integrated language arts.
Students will be required to spend a minimum of four hours per week for 12 weeks in a prepracticum field experience. The preferred field site is an elementary or middle school classroom
where the language arts are taught. Arrangements for the field experience are the student's
responsibility. Prerequisite: An introductory course in the teaching of reading or the teaching of the language arts.
