Language Development and Emergent Literacy in Early Childhood

The objective of this course is to examine the complex process of teaching and learning relationships which provide the scaffold for an integrated curriculum within an experiential print-rich environment including design, implementation and documentation in the areas of phonemic awareness; emergent, early and fluent reading and writing; read aloud, shared reading, and guided reading; poetry; children’s literature; and anti-bias curriculum as well as the adult’s role as scribe and facilitator. This course includes a supervised internship at a child care center or school site where the student is given the opportunity to use the theoretical and practical concepts learned in the class.
