SPED 415 - Multisensory/Comprehensive Language Arts Instruction II


(5 S.H.)

The second of a two-course sequence ( SPED 414 - Multisensory/Comprehensive Language Arts Instruction I  and SPED 415) in literacy methods extends the examination of reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing competencies into all areas of language arts. The focus will be on applying multisensory teaching techniques based on the original work of Orton and Gillingham to all the areas needed for literacy competencies: word decoding and encoding, comprehension skills, written expression skills, vocabulary development, and knowledgeable use of grammar. This will also include assessment of an individual’s specific instructional needs and ways to adapt instruction of essential concepts to fit those needs at all levels of literacy required by learners from kindergarten through high school. 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. Prerequisite: SPED 414 - Multisensory/Comprehensive Language Arts Instruction I . Grade only. Offered spring semester only.
