Foundations of Early Literacy

Monday, January 3

Apply for a seat in this four-week online course.

Monday, January 3 – Sunday, January 30, 2022

This class is based on the research and resources of the Every Child Ready to Read® initiative (from ALA’s Public Library Association and the Association for Library Service to Children) and is informed by child development. Through it you will become familiar with early literacy skills (phonological awareness, print awareness, letter knowledge, vocabulary, and background knowledge) and practices (talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing) and how they can be applied to one-on-one interactions with children and their parents and caregivers. In addition, you will learn ways in which library environments can be supportive of staff sharing early literacy information and activities.

This Foundations course does not require a background in children’s services. We can “lead with early literacy” from any position.

This course does not address storytime programs.

This course is REQUIRED for the Early Childhood Literacy Certificate.

CALL SPONSORED: In order to gain the most impact from learning events sponsored by the CALL grant, we ask that all participants engage fully (attend, participate, discuss and share). If you are unable or not willing to agree to this, please be kind and leave a seat or place for someone else.
