We recently released a new continuing education course on Adolescent Literacy with a credit value of 1-hour. Upon further examination of the course we realized the word count was closer to a 2-hour credit course. So we added four more test questions and upgraded the credit (and the cost, of course :)).
This is a web-based course requiring an internet connection to access the required online reading materials. Course instructions provide a direct link to the free, public-access online document on which the CE test is based. This course presents evidence-based advice for improving adolescent reading and writing skills in content-area classes. Topics covered include decoding, morphology, fluency, vocabulary, text comprehension, reading assessment, writing, motivation, and the needs of diverse learners. Chapters in this document present information on the practices of good readers, challenges faced by adolescent readers, instruction techniques to improve skills, and areas for future research. This class is relevant to educators, school psychologists, counselors, speech-language pathologists, and instructional coaches. Course #20-54 | 2010 | 14 posttest questions | 4 page course download includes links to online documents and posttest questions
