Bringing New Literacies into the Content Area Literacy Methods Course
Kajder, Sara B.
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v7 n2 p92-99 2007
Multiple states set coursework in content area literacy as a requirement for secondary teacher licensure. This paper discusses the author's Content Area Reading and Writing course at the University of Louisville, designed for secondary preservice teachers who are in a range of disciplines: secondary English, science, mathematics, foreign language, social studies, art, music, and physical education. This methods course models the integration of technology that demonstrates possibilities for students' own classroom teaching. Unless students are working with methods faculty members who have a research interest or a scholarly interest in technology, it is highly unlikely that this modeling will occur in any other course offered at the university. This paper illustrates a sample of the activities that the course presents students.
