Language and Literacy Learning in Early Childhood - EDST212

This unit builds on foundational knowledge of theories of the connection between language, literacy and learning and examines pedagogies for supporting children to develop language and literacy from birth through to their transition into primary school. Students will draw on current research, policies and pedagogical approaches to examine the role of intentional teaching, play- and literature-based experiences as well as childcare, family and community environments in early language and literacy learning. They will design, engage in and critically evaluate developmentally appropriate and inclusive language and literacy learning experiences for young children from diverse backgrounds.
