EDMC 524 - Language and Word Study in a Diverse Society


Semester Offered: Summer
Credits (Range): 3 Hours
Why do some children have difficulty learning to read, when speaking is such a natural act? Through readings, discussion, and fieldwork, students examine this question, investigate historical and contemporary perspectives/controversies, and explore strategies to advance all children’s word knowledge, including that of English language learners. Strategy topics include phonological awareness and phonics instruction in a comprehensive literacy program; solving and understanding complex words; and children’s spelling as a window for determining developmentally appropriate instruction. Consent of the instructor required.
Instructor: K. Ganske
