Planning for Literacy Rich Environments

Course Code: EDUE1066I

Credits: 2

Course Description: In early learning and childcare, all aspects of program planning incorporate literacies including environments, materials, routines and transitions, relationships, families and community, and reflection. Literacy is understood broadly (listening, reading, writing, dancing, singing, counting, performing, moving, and constructing) and within this course, students are encouraged to explore the affordances offered by different literacy modes.

Planning for Literacy Rich Environments enables students to develop literacy rich environments appropriate for children from birth to 12 years. In this course, students learn how to plan child centred learning environments inclusive of flexible schedules and transitions, open ended materials, positive relationships and identities, and varied literacy experiences.
