EDUC 425. The Early Years of Literacy and Language Development. 3 Credits.
This course will provide a critical examination of how to help children read and write, particularly in ELL contexts. During this course, students will have opportunities to examine a variety of issues related to teaching literacy to young children, including oral/written language development, emergent literacy/biliteracy, reading fluency, reading comprehension, phonics and vocabulary development, early writing acquisition, differentiation of instruction, children’s literature, assessment in early literacy, effective reading/writing strategies, parental involvement, and reading-writing connections. Also, different theories and philosophies regarding children’s language/literacy development will be addressed. Developmentally appropriate practices will be also integrated throughout the course.
