EDUC 4105 - Early Literacy♦


(5 cr.) In this course, education professionals explore current research on the most effective methods of promoting literacy development in preschool children. Using the “five pillars” of reading—phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension—as an organizational framework, education professionals explore the characteristics of emergent readers and writers. They also learn about developmentally appropriate assessments, materials, and strategies for instruction, including developing literacy through play and effectively using current technologies. They also engage in coursework that highlights the integral role of literacy across the curriculum.
