3 hours Lecture, 3 credits
Upper-Division College Credit
Prerequisite(s): EEC 3301
AA Elective: No
This course surveys theories and practices applied to early literacy development. Teacher candidates examine and apply research-based approaches that are used in fostering the development of oral language and vocabulary, phonemic and phonological awareness, concepts of print, and comprehension. The role of emergent language and literacy learning in reading, writing, listening, speaking, and thinking are explored while addressing the social, emotional, physical, and creative development of young children. This course covers instructional strategies and related activities that foster a balanced, differentiated, positive, and constructive approach towards literacy learning for young children. In addition to class meetings, field experience in a kindergarten-to-grade-three educational setting is required. This course satisfies Florida Reading Endorsement (2011) Competency Two: Application of Research-Based Instructional Practices.
