    ED110 – Linking Literacy, Language and Linguistics

    In this one-block introductory course, our goal is to explore the science of literacy, language and linguistics and current policy and trends impacting literacy across the U.S. The course is designed to investigate the underlying linguistic structure and historical components of the English language and the need for more effective policy to close the gaps in literacy outcomes. This course is especially beneficial for those working with English Language Learners at home or abroad and for teachers of beginning readers and writers or struggling readers who require targeted or intensive intervention. Topics covered include oral language, structural linguistics, history of the language, dyslexia, assessment, and policy impacting literacy outcomes today. Students will participate in field assignments to observe Certified Academic Language Therapists working in both public and private settings, including ALLIES, the only Colorado public school for students with dyslexia.
