This is an advanced course in reading education designed for educators in curriculum leadership roles. This course examines current issues in linguistic and cognitive development as well as the implications for school-wide and system-wide reading programs. Specialized leadership roles in reading education will be examined through the solving of practical classroom, school, and system-related problems. Change processes and in-service strategies designed to facilitate program development will be investigated. The concept of a school-wide reading program across the subject areas will be developed. The role of literature, in particular novel study, will be a significant part of the school-wide concept. The practical activities form an integral part of this course.
