ECE 533 Literacy Methods and Differentiated Instruction: Preschool to Grade Four

3 Credits

This course focuses on the foundations for early literacy and the instructional strategies for teaching beginning reading and writing from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 4. Students learn about teaching young children before the age of formal instruction and investigate all aspects of the literacy curriculum while implementing developmentally appropriate strategies and differentiated instructional approaches. Issues are examined that impact literacy learning such as diversity, home-school connections, the role of play, creating a print rich environment, and oral language development. Methodologies for systematic and direct instruction in reading, developmentally appropriate instruction in the mechanics and process of writing, the assessments of language arts skills, the remediation of struggling readers, and the instruction of ELL learners are integral parts of this course. This course has a required field component. 

Prerequisite(s): ECE 530  , ECE 531  and ECE 532
