Science, YES!

Reading, YES! Online Professional Development


Reading, YES! Online for grades 4-8 has 8 individual online modules. Each module contains video, interactive content, and a variety of online learning tools. Online learners watch video clips of educational commentary and classroom video delivered over the Web. Tools, such as a glossary, standards links, and lists of Web resources, are included throughout. Module content encourages online learners to discuss or share ideas with others in their online community through the discussion board.

Through Reading, YES! online learners will study about issues of older students, gain understanding of English Language Development and the stages of language acquisition, and develop instructional strategies important to vocabulary, comprehension, writing, and reading in the content area.

The titles for the 8 modules in Reading, YES! are listed below.
       • Orientation
       • Intervention
       • Oral Language
       • Decoding and Spelling
       • Vocabulary and Syntax
       • Comprehension
       • Reading in the Content Areas
       • Written Language

These modules may be taken individually or they may be taken together as a university course. They may be combined with other modules to develop custom courses. Learning segments divide the content into manageable chunks of learning, making it easy for a busy teacher to complete the module.

This online program is available in two formats: instructor-led or self-paced. An electronic portfolio, which records the learners' responses throughout the module, is available to verify course completion. University credit is available.
