With this foundational framework, students will learn about and experience what is involved in assessing and teaching children to read and communicate through writing and speaking, from early childhood through high school. Students will develop knowledge of and skill in using effective teaching strategies and methods for developing the reading and writing skills of children from pre-school through 12th grade, including methods and strategies for incorporating literacy instruction across all subject area disciplines.
