In this course, students will learn how literacy skills, reading, writing, speaking, and listening develop in young children from birth to fourth grade. They will develop an understanding of their roles as teachers in supporting this development by creating literacy-rich environments and intentionally exposing children to critical skills at the appropriate ages. Skill development that will be addressed in this course includes emergent literacy skills, word recognition skills, such as phonics skills, context clues, and structural analysis, comprehension, assessment techniques, and approaches to remediation.
