Helping Young Children Learn Language and Literacy teaches language arts in a child-focused way. It provides teachers with sound instructional strategies to facilitate children’s reading, writing, speaking, and listening development from birth through kindergarten. The course identifies clear learning goals for teachers and offers opportunities for self-assessment. Recognizing that children are at the center of good language and literacy teaching, the course focuses on four central themes: a perspective on teaching and learning that blends constructivism and science-based instruction, respect for diversity, instruction-based assessment, and family involvement in literacy learning.
