MSE 7607 Emergent Literacy for Young Children

A child's journey to learning language begins the day they are born. Their literacy development progresses as they grow and develop. In this course, candidates will focus on language acquisition, more specifically, how young children birth to grade 2 learn to understand and use language to express their ideas, thoughts, and feelings when in communication with others. Teacher candidates will also learn about the skills most important to development of literacy, including early speech and language development, phonological processing, phonics and word recognition, and the interaction with print that occurs in young children beginning at birth and continuing through their preschool years.
