The goal of "Early Literacy and Books" (offered February 17 - March 21, 2014) is to introduce you to early literacy components and practices as set forth in the second edition of Every Child Ready to Read(r), an initiative of the American Library Association. By the end of the class, you should be able to recognize what the early literacy components look like for each age-level of children, newborn to two-year-olds, 2 and 3 year olds and 4 and 5 year olds, and to demonstrate how the components and practices can be applied while sharing books with young children.
