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.

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.
