Part-time Lecturer: Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program: EDUC 675

Rossier School of Education Faculty Los Angeles, California

The mission of the USC Rossier School of Education is to prepare leaders to achieve educational equity through practice, research and policy. We work to improve learning opportunities and outcomes in urban settings and to address disparities that affect historically marginalized groups. We teach our students to value and respect the cultural context of the communities in which they work and to interrogate the systems of power that shape policies and practices. Through innovative thinking and research, we strive to solve the most intractable educational problems.

This course, EDUC 675 Foundations of Literacy Instruction (Elementary Education), is designed to prepare teacher candidates in the application of a balanced, integrated, interactive, critical and culturally responsive perspective to teaching reading/language arts in grades K through 8. The focus of the course is on the foundational skills and strategies needed in the developmental phase of "learning to read," which is essential in "reading and learning for life”. Literacy processes develop over time through active construction on the part of the learner and through interactions with the teacher and peers. We begin with a focus on diverse literacy practices in the home and community and continue on instructional practices and experiences in school that remain connected to student’s interests, funds of knowledge, and lived experiences. This course further prepares students for the Reading Instruction Competence Assessment (RICA). A strong background in literacy development and instruction is required for the position. The class will meet weekly for 2.5 hours. Students submit weekly assignments that will require timely feedback and grading. Faculty who teach EDUC675 may be asked to further join occasional faculty meetings for the course, the program, or the school.

Part-Time Faculty: USC reserves the “Part-time Faculty” appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time who are not employed full-time in a primary position or career elsewhere.

USC is an equal-opportunity educator and employer, proudly pluralistic and firmly committed to providing equal opportunity for outstanding persons of every race, gender, creed and background. The university particularly encourages members of underrepresented groups, veterans and individuals with disabilities to apply. USC will make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with known disabilities unless doing so would result in an undue hardship.
