EDUC 2011 - Making Connections: The Foundations of Literacy


(2 cr.) Education professionals in this course explore the themes, issues, and developments in the foundations of literacy. They make connections between key topics and their own personal experiences, interests, and aspirations; other coursework; current research; real-world early childhood settings; and future trends, challenges, and possibilities within the fields of language development and children’s literature. Demonstrating knowledge of key concepts and theories, education professionals engage in written assignments designed to provide practical application of course content on a variety of topics, such as the benefits and impact of literacy, how literacy serves as a tool of social equity, and strategies to support family literacy and literacy programs.
