Participants will explore research-based early literacy teaching strategies for engaging children in integrated listening, speaking, reading, and writing experiences. There is an emphasis on incorporating content area standards and developing hands-on learning experiences for young children. Additionally, developmentally effective assessments are discussed as a means of guiding instruction."
