Literacy 0412 - Beginning Reading II

This is an information sheet only, not the course syllabus.



Fundamental course for emergent readers. Students will develop greater proficiency in using the print-sound code to read words and short texts with accuracy and fluency and expanding their repertoire of sight words. Vocabulary is built through increased independent reading, word analysis, and beginning dictionary use. Comprehension is built through multiple readings of more complex texts that contain more a challenging vocabulary and fewer illustrations. Students will apply various strategies when they recognize that a text does not make sense. Frequent reading is expected. This course may require visits to the Writing and Reading Assistance Area. This course can only be taken on a pass/fail basis. This course may be taken three times for credit.
