1 semester credit

Building a strong foundation of literacy skills and experiences in young children is critical to their success in school and life. In this course, educators examine the characteristics and essential literacy concepts of emergent and beginning readers and writers and current tools to support the literacy development of learners in preschool through third grade. Education professionals analyze appropriate developmental, research-based methods for meeting student needs and apply them to their own classrooms to build an effective literacy environment for emergent and beginning literacy learners.
