Assignments and Course Credit
The Teaching Reading 3-5 Workshop can be taken by groups or individuals for graduate credit. To receive credit, you must complete the eight workshop sessions and submit the assignments for each session. Assignments are clearly marked by the assignment symbol, and compiled for reference in each session. If you are taking the workshop for credit, you are also required to submit the ongoing project, a Literacy Practices Portfolio.
When you sign up for graduate credit, you will receive more information about turning in your assignments. If you are getting credit elsewhere, check with your local institution to determine how to submit the assignments.
Literacy Practices Portfolio
The most effective teaching relies on multiple strategies, tailored for the needs of your students and curriculum. To help you plan for effective literacy instruction, you will create a Literacy Practices Portfolio based on the topics of this workshop. In this ongoing project, you will document the things you have learned about your teaching, new strategies you would like to use, and actual changes you plan to implement. You may want to use a three-ring binder for your Literacy Practices Portfolio so that you can continue to add lessons and related materials at the end of each session.
If you are taking the Teaching Reading 3-5 Workshop for credit, submit a copy of your Portfolio at the end of the workshop.
