IUPUI is looking for an experienced elementary educator (masters degree or PhD. in elementary/literacy education or related field with qualifying experience) to teach a literacy methods course for pre-service elementary teachers during spring 2016 semester. The course is the third of three literacy methods courses that pre-service teachers at IUPUI take. The first two literacy methods courses focus on methods for literacy instruction for grades K-2 and methods for literacy instruction for grades 3-6. The third literacy methods course, and the one IUPUI is seeking an instructor for, focuses on:
- Methods and tools for identifying and working with students who are experiencing literacy difficulties.
- On-going assessment as part of the teaching-learning process.
- Developing a critical stance towards literacy through examining biases that can occur in the teaching-learning process.
The course meets on Wednesdays from 9AM-4:15PM for the first eight weeks of the semester (1/11/15 through 3/7/15). Please contact Erik Tillema at firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 274-6821 if you are interested.
