  • list the potential benefits of a low-cost scripted language and literacy curriculum for preschool-age children
  • discuss the relation between pre-K teachers’ use of print referencing and their quality of language instruction
  • evaluate real word oral reading fluency’s function as a predictor of reading comprehension in second-grade students
  • assess the contribution of working memory at the word and sentence levels of language to reading and writing outcomes of second-, fourth-, and sixth-graders
