An overview of inquiry-based teaching and learning within literacy instruction. Affiliated field experience will occur with a focus on assessing and meeting the needs of small groups of students.
This course will fulfill state required content requirements for educators pursuing advanced literacy endorsements from the SC Department of Education. This course will also be part of the MEd in Language and Literacy. A program adjustment to include this course in the MEd will be submitted following this proposal.
Address committee's recommendationa
The Office of Student Disability Services should be changed to their new name: Student Disability Resource Center. In addition to the phone number the email address and the office's web address could be included: https://sc.edu/about/offices_and_divisions/student_disability_resource_center/ email: https://sc.edu/about/offices_and_divisions/student_disability_resource_center/index.php
Under academic integrity we recommend that in addition to the link to the honor code the statement with the university’s academic integrity policy should also be included along with the consequences for violating the policy that may be imposed by the University in addition to failing the course. See the statement below.
One or more of the following sanctions may be imposed for Academic Integrity violations: 1) Expulsion from the University; 2) Suspension from the University for a period of no less than one semester; and/or Probation. A combination of the above sanctions may be implemented. It should be noted that submitting someone else’s work is cheating and against the Carolina Code. Cheating, or any other Academic Integrity violations, will result in failure of the course for all involved parties. All parties will also be referred to the Office of Academic Integrity for additional retribution. Contact Information: Byrnes 201, 803.777.4333, https://www.sa.sc.edu/academicintegrity
We recommend using Modules instead of Weeks in the Outline and Schedule, particularly if the course may be offered during the summer or for a session that is less than 14 weeks.
A final tally of the total course contact minutes must be included.
Include the following in the Copyright Statement: All readings/materials comply with copyright/fair use policies.
Add the following statement to the syllabus: All learning outcomes in this Distributed Learning course are equivalent to the face-to-face (F2F) version of this course.
Please make revision requested by committee.
If the course is 100% online and asynchronous, a meeting time and room should not be specified as all course activities and instruction should occur online. The Office of the Registrar began enforcing the instructional method and associated descriptions in Spring 2019. As a result, DWEB, which is defined as Web 100% Asynchronous, may no longer include a face-to-face option.
Need to specify the communication/feedback turnaround time on assignments.
Need to state minimal student technical requirements/skills required to complete the course.
Return at request of proponent
Course will be added to the 1920 Graduate Bulletin.
