RDG 3110 - Foundations of Literacy Instruction in Grades P-6

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): PSY 1800, EDU 3100, or EDU 3000 and EDU 3200 (for elementary licensure students) or permission of instructor, and satisfactory completion of General Studies Level I composition and mathematics requirement; and junior standing

Description: This course builds the knowledge base of prospective teachers and includes the research and theoretical foundation of P-6 developmental reading programs. It stresses the environmental, cognitive, and language factors influencing the acquisition and development of literacy with emphasis on phonological awareness and graph phonemics. In this course, preservice teachers gain a current knowledge base which will enable them to select instructional techniques, materials, and assessment instruments that will facilitate the literacy development of diverse learners. For licensure, this knowledge-base course must be followed by a second reading course, either RDG 3120 for early childhood licensure candidates or RDG 4000 for elementary licensure candidates, that will emphasize performance-based and field-based learning experiences.
