Masters of Instruction Cohort
Berryville MEd Cohort
School of Continuing & Professional Studies
August 1-4 and 8-11, 2007

As an elective in the Masters of Instruction program, offered through the University of Virginia, EDLF 781: Reading & Writing across the Curriculum has been tailored to examine the instructional and curricular issues surrounding writing, reading, and thinking across the curriculum. The course has elements of the traditional Writing Across the Curriculum course, but there is also an infusion of Evaluation of Teaching, Curriculum Design and Planning, and Content Area Reading. We will look at how to teach and use writing as a tool of learning; how to achieve understanding by design; how to be strategic in delivery of instruction; and how to evaluate and assess comprehension-based instructional practices. Ultimately, course participants should find themselves not only better prepared and more competent at delivering comprehension-focused instruction, but also more able instructional leaders across all curricular areas.
