Description
The course focuses on positive development of minority children and their families and takes a strengths-based approach to studying them. Students examine different sources of evidence of whether and how sociocultural factors and parenting practices shape children's language and literacy development. Students discuss evidence-based interventions at home and school that aim to improve children's language and literacy skills, particularly in low-income and ethnically diverse communities. Class sessions involve a combination of lectures and group discussion based on empirical articles, book chapters, press articles, and videos. Students complete individual assignments.
