English: Learning to be Literate (EDUP2002)


In this unit you will develop understandings about the teaching of reading, writing, listening and speaking to students in the early years of schooling, as well as a focus on visual and written grammar, and associated classroom pedagogy. A balanced approach to the development of literacy and the teaching of English will be exemplified by a focus on the use of quality children's literature relevant to this stage of learning.
