EDL 3146N - Literacy Acquisition I
The primary objective of this "literacy foundations" course is to familiarize teachers in-training with theoretical and pragmatic aspects of literacy acquisition/instruction for students who are English speakers, as well as those who are English language learners. Students are introduced to theories of reading/writing/listening and speaking; the relationship between theory and assessment/instructional practices, literacy instructional strategies; and classroom management techniques. The Learning Standards for English Language Arts are introduced and specific assessment and instructional strategies "keyed" to each standard are taught.

The challenges associated with facilitating literacy in a multi- cultural environment are also addressed. Corequisties for Elementary Education Majors: EDH 3104N, EDL 3146N and field placement.
