EDUC 359 - Teaching Reading to Young Children


3 hours
This course is designed specifically for candidates preparing to teach preschool through grade three. The teacher’s role in nurturing emergent literacy, including both reading and writing, will be developed as well as use of appropriate technology and instructional strategies in young readers. Because early literacy experiences are learned through a healthy, balanced experiential environment in the home, one feature of the course will include parental involvement in the reading experiences. Other areas to be covered will include classroom environment, thinking about print and writing, shared reading, literature- based reading, language experience, phonemic awareness and phonics instruction vocabulary, comprehension, balanced literacy, basal reading, assessment, and creating books. Includes a field experience. Prerequisite(s): admission to Teacher Education or permission of Director of Teacher Education. UG
