1. Stages of Language Development: Pre-Linguistic and Symbolic Language
How does language expression emerge in children? Learn about the development of syntax in children through the pre-linguistic and linguistic stages of language development in this lesson.
2. The Effects of Environment and Culture on Language Development
Both environmental and cultural factors have an impact on early language development. This lesson will provide examples to consider and discuss possible reasons for this impact.
3. The Nativist Perspective and Language Development
In this lesson, learn how we develop language according to the nativist perspective. Discover Noam Chomsky's idea of the language acquisition device (LAD) and its role in this process.
4. Children's Awareness of the Spoken & Written Language Relationship
Print Awareness is an important element for young children associating writing and reading with spoken language. Understanding the symbolic nature of letters and words can add greatly to reading acquisition.
5. The Role of Environmental Print in Early Development
One of the first indicators that young children are responding to print is their ability to read environmental print. This lesson will define the term and explain how to use it to develop early reading skills.
6. How Students Learn Directionality of Print
Children don't automatically understand how reading works. Pre-reading skills, such as knowing where to begin reading on the page, need to be taught. This lesson explains how teachers and parents can help children develop these skills.
7. Phonological Recoding: Syllable Patterns & Letter Combinations
Phonological skills are essential to learning to read and write. This lesson gives an overview of basic terms that describe letter combinations used in phonological recoding and explains how teachers can help students develop these skills.
8. The Relationship Between Decoding & Encoding in Phonics
Though not all children learn to read in the same way and at the same time, there are predictable relationships between some of their steps. This lesson will define decoding and encoding and detail their interplay in a developing reader.
