EDCI 2027 - Fostering Literacy in Young Children


Lec. 3; Cr. 3

An introduction to theory and practice in emerging and primary grade literacy. Designed for preservice teachers who plan to work with preschool and primary grade children, the course emphasizes the continuum of early literacy experiences that begins at birth-oral language development, exposure to print and its conventions, mastering the alphabet and the knowledge that the alphabet maps to speech in English, and early writing and spelling awareness. The course includes instruction on the teaching of literacy skills to children with special needs. Ten hours of field experience working with a young child are required.
