EDU 330 - Foundations of Literacy (1)

This course is designed to facilitate an understanding of the processes of literacy development for elementary learners. Diversity, in its many forms, will frame many of the discussions on the ways literacy is culturally situated within elementary classrooms. A range of research-based reading and writing theories will be examined as well as the history of reading and writing theories. A focus on the major components of reading (phonemic awareness, word identification/phonic, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension in context) and the integration of technology in literacy learning will be emphasized. Lastly, how, as elementary teachers, might reading struggles be mediated and authenticated via natural learning experiences for diverse students will be discussed throughout the course. DOES NOT COUNT TOWARDS THE ELEMENTARY EDUCATION MAJOR Prerequisites: Admittance to the Teacher Preparation Program/Education Department (during the sophomore year) and either EDU 318 - Methods of Elementary Language Arts and Reading (1)  or EDU 319 - Children’s Literature (1)  or permission of instructor.
