EDUC 205 - Children’s Language and Literature


3 credits (3 lecture)
This course will emphasize and explore major literary genres, story-telling techniques, and current issues in children’s literature. Additionally the course will discuss the linguistic development in children that is fostered through exposure to literature while identifying specific developmental milestones in speech and language development. Students will learn the techniques in creating a print-rich environment in the early childhood setting while analyzing the cultural and familial influences on language and literacy. Comprehension strategies that support readers in constructing meaning from text (both literary and information) and in monitoring their comprehension will be presented along with competencies and skills needed to effectively support students whose first language is not English.
