Raising Readers: Preparing Preschoolers for Success

Course Section Description:

This course focuses on preparing preschoolers for success by developing their early literacy skills. Using research from early literacy experts Susan B. Neuman and Kathleen Roskos, you'll learn how to plan meaningful experiences that build on preschoolers' prior knowledge, expand their vocabulary, and strengthen oral language development. 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.

Similar to an in-person undergraduate or graduate-level course, the number of hours identified for this course reflects the expected amount of time learners will spend online, but does not reflect the total time spent completing coursework and assignments offline.
