ECE 435 - Children's Literacy Across the Curriculum
This course builds on knowledge of speech and language patterns and literacy development in young children, constructed in previous classes. Various models for literacy development are examined.

Practical skills derived from each model are demonstrated, practiced by students and integrated into an early childhood classroom field experience.
