Raising Readers: Preparing Preschoolers for Success

Course Section Description:

This course focuses on preparing preschoolers for success by developing their early literacy skills. Using early literacy research from Susan B. Neuman and Kathleen Roskos, you'll learn to plan meaningful early literacy-learning experiences that build on preschoolers' prior knowledge, expand their vocabulary, and strengthen oral language development — providing the foundation for reading, writing, and future academic success. Unless otherwise indicated, this course is not usually available for graduate credit.

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

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.

The number of hours identified for each course reflects time spent online, but does not reflect the total time spent completing offline coursework and assignments. All learners are different and you will likely spend double the indicated number of hours completing all coursework depending on your learning style and work habits.
