ECE 430 - Play, Language, and Literacy

3 Credit(s)
How do young children develop the skills they need to grow up competent in a literate society - language, dramatic play, using tools and materials to represent their experience, and reading? This course is an examination of the development of symbolic behaviors and the role of adults in supporting children's play, language and literacy. Students will examine developmentally appropriate curriculum and assessment design for diverse literacy learners.
