Aspects of Literacy Development in Preschool and Elementary School Age Children
This program explores current topics in the development of such critical reading precursors as vocabulary knowledge, narrative ability, phonological awareness, and print knowledge. Aspects of the reading and writing abilities of elementary school students are also considered.
You will be able to:
- discuss how context affects the production of complex sentences by children aged 2–4
- list the potential benefits of a low-cost scripted language and literacy curriculum for preschool-age children
- discuss the relationship 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
