Professor: Dr. Barbara Cockerham Phone: 951-343-4262 (work) Email:bcockerh@calbaptist.edu Tuesday 4:30 6:55 p.m. Office # YCB233

Classroom: YCB B251 Office Hours: Tuesday 2:30 - 4:30 pm Wednesday 2:30 4:30 pm.

INFORMATION YOU NEED:

You will be required to sign in by your name each time we meet. You are absent (even if I see you), if you do not sign in. If you are late, please indicate the time next to your name. (Being late or leaving early more than 30 minutes will be a reduction in attendance/participation points) Please put your name card on the table in front of you each time we meet.

Please write on only one side of the paper. All work not done in class must be word processed, not handwritten, except for concept sheets.

Please add a header to each page with your last name, course number, date and assignment i.d. (some abbreviation for the assignment.) Also add pagination if it is more than one page long.

Please turn off your cell phone. See me if you have special circumstances.

You will be accountable for discussions, hand-outs, etc. as well as regular assignments. It will be important to be clear about what should be brought to class each week. Bring PostIts! and a highlighter to class. It will help!!

Please select a buddy and exchange telephone numbers. I will not be responsible for remembering to give you handouts, etc. if you are absent or late. Your buddy will have to help you. Have someone collect handouts and write down things you need to know, if you are absent. If you email me, please put your last name and the Course Number in the subject line (EDU 516). Thanks. Any file you send me should have your name, course number, and page number in the header. I prefer hard copies of your work for correcting.

There will be a lot of group work in this class. Just like you dont pick your family, you dont usually pick your group in this class. This prepares you for working with a variety of teachers on a regular basis in the workplace!

Live Text. An e-portfolio in Live Text will be used to post reflection and critical

Assignment. A reflective statement concerning meeting SLO(s) will be included in the

face of the class section of the portfolio. The critical assignment and syllabus should

also be attached in the class section. The portfolio will be prepared and submitted via

the Live Text Course Tab. Failure to meet this expectation will significantly affect your

course grade.

CBU policies against plagiarism will be followed. As a teacher, you must be blameless in your moral rectitude. Our students need a positive role model in a world that offers many temptations to do other than what is right!

IMPORTANT NOTE: THERE ARE REGULAR RICA PREP CLASSES FREE TO CBU STUDENTS AND ALUMNI. SIGN UP ON ROOM YC B233. It is important that you take the RICA test as soon as you have completed this course!!

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The study of current research-based theories and practices in the teaching of the elements of a balanced, comprehensive literacy program in public and private schools will be taught. The elements of phonics and decoding as a base for teaching and learning will be stressed. Cultural and linguistic differences will be examined as they pertain to literacy instruction and communication.

Students will be required to spend one-two hours per week (a total of 20 hours), at an approved elementary school site observing, participating, and tutoring students in reading.
