The Connection Between Spoken Language and Literacy Development
This graduate course is designed for classroom teachers, special education teachers, speech-language pathologists, and/or school personnel who want to learn more about the connection between spoken language and literacy. Students will study the relationship between each of the language domains (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics) and the development of reading and writing across grade levels. This course covers the developmental progression of phonological awareness, the essential morphological and grammatical skills for teaching language and literacy, and how to expand students’ vocabulary. Students will learn practical strategies for supporting reading comprehension and written language in the K-12 classroom.
