This set of Stanford Teacher Education Program syllabi focuses on the major theoretical, conceptual, and evidence-based foundations of elementary/intermediate literacy and language and the ways in which they interrelate. The first course introduces the major theoretical, conceptual, and evidence-based foundations of teaching reading and writing. The second course introduces fundamentals in content, pedagogy, and assessment for teaching reading and writing. The third course explores theories and practices related to critical, multimodal, and home literacies. Candidates explore these topics through a variety of experiences, including discussion, simulations, planning, and reflecting with colleagues.
