P174-7520.1F18 - Tell Me About It: Oral Language Development through Phonological Awareness, Visual Literacy and Storytelling

Course Details
Course Description:

Eminent literacy experts such as Reuven Feuerstein, Maryanne Wolf, Timothy Rasinski, Vicki Gibson, Catherine Snow, and Joseph Torgesen concur that oral language is the basis of literacy and school success. Alas, due to a number of factors including a misinterpretation of the Common Core Standards, explicit oral language development has been downplayed in schools, and, thanks to texting and email, oral language has practically disappeared from many homes. Conscientious parents are talking to their children, but not to each other. Nannies are texting; older brothers and sister are texting. Oral language is no longer part of the home environment.

Tell Me about It: Oral Language Development through Phonological Awareness, Visual Literacy and Storytelling aims to amplify and redress this situation. Participants will learn the research basis for the importance of oral language development to foster vocabulary development, receptive and productive language, correct articulation, knowledge acquisition, auditory memory, and social skills. They will also learn to validate and respect the powerful oral language traditions, with a focus on American Indian cultures with strong oral and storytelling traditions through artwork and objects at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI).
