Description: This course is designed to prepare pre-service and in-service teachers in grades PK-12 to teach reading and writing skills related to content subjects (i.e., Math, Science, Social Studies, English Language Arts) in an integrated manner. Methods and materials needed to promote reading achievement in content subjects will be examined. This course will discuss the basic components of the reading and the writing processes and aid in the development of techniques to help students construct meaning from both expository and literature texts across the various disciplines. This course contains a clinical component for the implementation of a 4-6 day unit of study in a PK-12 classroom. This course requires the completion of a minimum of 15 hours in a South Carolina public school setting. MAT-LD program participants must be placed in a classroom that provides instruction to PK-12 students with learning disabilities. To complete the field experience hours, a current SLED background check must be received and approved by the FMU School of Education. Students should check the "News and Announcements" webpage for specific SLED background check deadlines.
