EDAM 5012. Master Teacher Practicum: Applying Action Research to Develop a Results-driven Early Literacy Classroom
This six credit practicum is designed to integrate all course content from the Early Literacy series through the practical application and implementation of a comprehensive literacy program in the classroom. Participants will complete an action research project in their classrooms and document the instruction and interventions which were provided to maximize student proficiency. Participants will be required to maintain a journal, participate in weekly discussions, group meetings, and debriefings with a practicum supervisor. At the end of the practicum learners will submit an evidence portfolio that will document and reflect on each phase of the action research project.
