ECE 302 Literacy Methods I

3 Credits

Literacy Methods I focuses on the foundations for early literacy learning and the instructional strategies for teaching beginning reading and writing from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 1. All aspects of the literacy curriculum and teaching young children reading skills before the age of formal instruction are investigated. An emphasis is placed upon effective and developmentally appropriate strategies for young children. Additionally, students examine issues that impact literacy learning, such as diversity, home-school connections, the role of play in learning, creating a print-rich environment, and oral language development. Students also learn how to implement specific literacy assessments in order to make sound instructional strategies for developing beginning readers and writers.
