Content Area Literacy: An Online Compressed Format

Dana L. Skelley, Rebeeca S. Anderson


Content Area Literacy is a graduate level course required for the Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) elementary and secondary programs at the University of X.  This course has been taught for the past ten years as an online course and for the past two years in a compressed online format (seven weeks) during fall and spring terms.  This course was designed to provide future K-12 teachers with knowledge, strategies, and practices for embedding literacy instruction in subject areas such as math, science, and social studies.  We offer our insights and best practices for implementing and managing a compressed-format course.
