Additional Course Details: 

This two-semester secondary school English methods course integrates the teaching of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing. It addresses both theoretical and practical issues of teaching.  We’ll explore how, every day, English teachers must meet the needs and interests of a richly varied population of students.  We will review the varied English teaching standards used in NH schools, construct and critique teaching documents, and discuss and apply the work of master literacy teachers and theorists. 

During each term, you will need to devote thirty hours to a lab/practicum project in which you will work with a teacher in a local school or build a case study of the literacy practices of a young adult.

In this year-long writing intensive seminar, we will focus on teaching writing in the fall and teaching reading and literature in the spring — although it is difficult and even undesirable to attempt to fully separate these literacy acts.
