Foundations of Early Literacy (Library Juice)
Course Description: Both using and expanding on the early literacy information in the Every Child Ready to Read® initiative (from ALA’s Public Library Association and the Association for Library Service to Children), you will become familiar with the early literacy skills (phonological awareness, print awareness, letter knowledge, vocabulary, and background knowledge) and practices (talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing). Building on this knowledge, we will explore ways to apply them to your work, including ways to make library environments supportive of staff sharing early literacy information and activities with parents and caregivers. Here is the direct link to the course to learn more.
