About this Course

Language is central to a child's learning: without it, they cannot make sense or communicate the understanding of a subject. It is an important skill that allows a child to communicate. Complications or delay in language skills can make the child frustrated and may end up miscommunicating; hence language development is important for a child. This course familiarises you with language development from birth through primary-aged children.

The course, aimed for teachers, is an online self-paced course allowing the teachers to learn at their own pace. Focus areas of the course include speech and language processes for communication, language development stages, theories of language acquisition, assessment of language development and activities that foster language development. Special attention is paid to first generation learners and linguistically diverse population in India, children for whom English is a second language and students with learning disabilities, mapped to the latest research in the field of education. A range and development of pre-reading/pre-writing and reading and writing curricula for preschool, kindergarten and primary grades will be taught. It includes videos, slide presentations, assessments, assignments and teaching strategies to be used while teaching the students. Learners can also take part in bytes, blogging, discussion forums to ideate and help fellow teachers learn useful ideas and tricks.

By the end of the course, you will be able to use "science-based" practices and emergent literacy to teach and enhance children's English language skills.
