The CIM Courses system will be down temporarily undergoing routine maintenance.
Drawing on prior program experiences in leadership and interdisciplinary literacies, students develop and refine effective interdisciplinary literacy education leadership qualities and skills, facilitate change in school communities, and foster teacher growth and student achievement. Students demonstrate lessons and provide assistance with lesson planning to teachers in, across, and between subject area disciplines and conduct professional development workshops in school settings.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to: 1. Describe factors that influence educational change related to interdisciplinary literacy programs. 2. Apply knowledge of the change process to working effectively with teachers, staff, and other educators. 3. Demonstrate for teachers and other educators a variety of evidence-based strategies and techniques for teaching and learning interdisciplinary literacies in classrooms and other education settings. 4. Plan and deliver effective professional development pertaining to interdisciplinary literacies, to include planning with teachers and other educators, and in-service workshops.

Rationale for course and title change: In part, the modification of the course title to include “literacy” is the same as the rationale for the title change of CPED 6622, 6691, and 6292. Second, IRA (2010) accreditation standards and credit hour requirements call for new literacy education leadership dimensions that include, but go well beyond those elements in the current course of the program. Drawing from their experiences earlier in the program and in particular CPED 6292 in leadership and interdisciplinary literacies, candidates develop and refine effective interdisciplinary literacy education leadership qualities and skills, facilitate change in school communities, and foster teacher growth and student achievement through modeling, supporting teachers, and through professional development. Candidates carry out demonstration lessons and provide lesson planning assistance to teachers in, across, and between the subject area disciplines and conduct professional development workshops in school settings.
