RDG 506 - The Emergence of Literacy

(Cr: 3)
This course will examine the role of the “reflective practitioner” in developing literacy experiences for elementary-schoolaged children.We have come to realize that children progress along a developmental continuum that reveals their gradual or “emerging” construction of knowledge about reading and writing. The importance of the five components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension) to the emergence of literacy will be examined. Activities, content, and materials are related to the current Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for English Language Arts.
