Summary of Changes Made in This Calendar - Literacy and the Indigenous Child in a Canadian Context, Birth - Age 8

Education 2150 Literacy and the Indigenous Child in a Canadian Context, Birth - Age 8
Based on a social constructivist, reader response perspective on literacy teaching and learning, students will be introduced to theory and exemplary practices which support the early literacy development of Indigenous children from birth to age 8. Students will have opportunities to study and address challenges they may encounter as literacy teachers in the development of young children's oral reading and writing proficiency. They will begin to develop professional knowledge and worldviews, Indigenous children's literature and resources and children's engagement and response through print and multiliteracies.
