Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
Rationale for Change in Course Title: Rationale for course and title change: The modification of the course title to include “literacy” is the same as the rationale for the title change of CPED 6622 and 6691 provided above. Second, IRA (2010) accreditation standards call for new literacy education leadership dimensions that include, but go well beyond those elements in the present program. Through the course modification, contemporary issues and conditions influencing literacy/reading leadership roles programs are discussed. Attention is focused on evaluating and designing 21st Century literate environments, which include printed texts on paper and digital materials and the interdisciplinary relations of subject area multimedia texts. Candidates work directly with other educators in instructional facilitation and professional development activities as well as meeting the specific literacy education needs of children. The course prepares students for the final practicum course “Leadership in Interdisciplinary Literacies, Collaboration, Planning, and Communication” described subsequently.
