(3cr) This course introduces students to the five pillars of reading instruction (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension) and the connection between reading and writing instruction. Reading instruction, assessment, and methods to reinforce all aspects of literacy (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) across different types of text with children pre-K to fifth grade are presented. The role of family and culture, learning diversity, and language acquisition on the development of literacy skills are explored.
