EDU 566 CAFÉ 2.0
A child’s success in school and in life relies on the establishment of a strong foundation of literacy skills and experiences. Educators in this course learn and apply the CAFE (comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and expand vocabulary) Literacy System as an organizational framework for teaching reading. Components examined include: a protocol for instruction, the five pillars of reading, standards aligned instruction, data-driven decision making, learner diversity, brain compatible instruction, and organizing student information. This course provides practitioners with the knowledge and skills to successfully differentiate literacy instruction to meet student needs and required standards, in any setting. This course is created and approved by Gail Boushey and Allison Behne, authors of The CAFE Book, Expanded Second Edition.
