Teaching With Illustrated Materials, K-3 – LLED 446
Learning to read is important at a young age, and its also very important to have teachers with a variety of methods to help young children learn and grow as readers.
EPLT, the department of Language & Literacy Education at UBC, and the Vancouver School Board are joining together to offer a section of LLED 446: Teaching With Illustrated Materials, K-3: From Picture Books to Information Texts. This course will be located in Vancouver and will start in January.
From the course web site:
This course explores the use of illustrated children’s materials in early childhood education with particular attention given to the role of the visual modality in conveying narrative and concept information to young children. This course focuses on and explores the ways that illustrated materials support the instructional goals of early years education. This course aims to promote awareness and acceptance of diversity, our own and that of our peers, students and that of the creators of illustrated literary texts.
LLED 446 will be held at the Alliance for Arts & Culture building in downtown Vancouver, on six Saturdays beginning on January 7, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Even better, this course can be used as part of the Early Years Education diploma program.
Register soon, as space is limited.
