EECE 773 - Families, Stories, and Literacy
Required course in Literacy MSEd. Elective course in the Family and Community Studies and Language and Literacy Learning Specialties. This course examines the reciprocal influences of families, stories, and literacy in the lives of children. Students apply constructs from developmental psychology and sociocultural perspectives to consider how families shape the young child's approach to language, stories, and literacy while in turn being shaped by the child's encounters with spoken and written words. This course will also include topics related to crosscultural perspectives on language acquisition and the development of effective strategies for teaching B-2 students who come to school with diverse language experiences and capabilities.
