Most early literacy difficulties can be prevented through early, responsive, comprehensive, and coherent literacy instruction. This course focuses on helping teachers to develop greater expertise in identifying and effectively responding to learners who struggle at the early stages of literacy acquisition. Topics include differentiated instruction in an RTI context, promoting motivation to read and write, the development of phonological skills, a strategic word approach to word learning, and oral language skills and the knowledge base upon which comprehension depends. Graduate students provide one-to-one intervention for a young literacy learner and engage small groups of students in interactive read aloud. Prerequisite: Satisfactory completion of ELtl 655.
