EDU 370 - Literacy Acquisition and Development in Children: Birth - Grade 6


This course emphasizes the acquisition and the development of language and literacy in children. The teaching of reading and writing as construction processes within a well-balanced literacy program will be emphasized, an appropriate model for instructing children in inclusive classrooms. Teacher candidates will learn to use instructional strategies with children who are linguistically and culturally diverse, as well as those who have a wide range of special needs. Assessment strategies to monitor literacy growth, the use of technology to support literacy, and the selection and use of developmentally appropriate materials are included in this course. A field experience is required.
