SPED 414 - Multisensory/Comprehensive Language Arts Instruction I


(5 S.H.)

The first of a two-course sequence (SPED 414 and SPED 415 - Multisensory/Comprehensive Language Arts Instruction II ) in literacy methods. This first course examines the integration of reading, writing, listening, and speaking competencies in a unified literacy curriculum for learners from kindergarten through grade12. Instructional emphasis is placed upon learning the sound/symbols associations for all levels of written language including the multisensory essential teaching techniques in literacy instruction based on the original work of Orton and Gillingham. Instruction encompasses linguistic rules and the structure of English from elementary to the highest levels of vocabulary, and matching appropriate instructional strategies with the present knowledge of learners and their language learning capabilities. A required supervised practicum is integral to the course. WSU students enrolled in this course must demonstrate mastery of the skills learned by teaching students with reading difficulties under supervised conditions. This two-course sequence meets the Minnesota Board of Teaching reading competency requirements. Grade only. Offered fall semester only.
