ED 4600 - Teaching the Language Arts

Students receive both a theoretical and practical background in language learning and its connections to literacy acquisition. The course focuses on the elements in a language arts program. Particular emphasis is placed on integrating language arts into the total elementary school curriculum by examining the process of developing effective communication skills and integrating content areas. Students develop a unit of study that addresses the development of children’s language and thinking skills, written communication and grammar, listening and speaking skills, spelling and handwriting. This course requires non-credit field placement experience that provides for implementation and assessment of the student’s unit.
