RLA 307 Overview

This innovative course utilizes an arts integration approach to early language, literacy and child development with a focus on birth to six. Students will learn how to plan, assess and instruct children in concepts of print, alphabet knowledge, the alphabetic principle, phonological awareness, vocabulary and narrative. They will participate in practicum experiences to observe language and literacy environments and plan and implement read-alouds, dramatic play and language and literacy lessons. The Kennedy Center defines arts integration as “an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.” RLA 307 combines topics in early childhood development and literacy with artful practices and creative modes of thinking.
