Raising Readers: Preparing Preschoolers for Success

Course Description:

Literacy is the foundation of learning. That’s why it’s critical to foster the development of literacy skills as early as preschool. Developing these skills now will provide students with a strong reading and writing foundation and set them up for future academic success. Drawing from research from early literacy experts Susan B. Neuman and Kathleen Roskos, you will learn:

• The five essential early literacy practices

• How to plan meaningful literacy-learning experiences for young children, including English learners

• How to develop activities that build on preschoolers’ prior knowledge, expand their vocabulary, strengthen oral language development, and integrate technology


Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
