Description

Literacy growth will be viewed as part of a developmental continuum progressing from oral language acquisition, speaking, and listening, through the use of language, invented spelling, beginning writing, and emergent reading. Through the reading-writing connection, basal readers, literature-based programs and whole language, an eclectic approach to reading will be presented. Of significance will be the use of this literature to promote any literary development. Three lecture hours per week plus field experiences. Required for Education majors, Early Childhood concentration.
