Course Description

Increase your understanding of emergent literacy, the structure of the English language, and the development of fluent reading within a school-wide culture of literacy. In this course, students review current research pertaining to fluency, oral language development, word analysis, and written language development. Participants then integrate this research with practical application. Course content also considers the normal progression in complexity for each component of literacy, as explicated in the state standards. Finally, students learn about instructional sequences and routines that develop and accelerate students' language and literacy learning, including Response to Intervention (RtI).
