ESS 33627 - Section 01: CBL:Literacy Dvlpmt & Children (CRN 14111)
Long Title: CBL: Literacy Development and Children

Course Description:
For students who wish to integrate theory, practice, and empirical evidence in children's learning, this course combines community-based service learning and research. Students will meet 75 minutes/week on campus to discuss readings on topics including service learning, mentoring, children's learning and development, and research methods. In addition, students will spend at least two hours/week (3pm-4pm, two weekday afternoons [M/W or T/R] for a total of approximately 25 hours) working one-on-one with an elementary school child in a local after-school literacy program. Students will keep a journal with entries for each visit with their child, and they will conduct research comparing instructional techniques, materials, or behavioral management methods. Finally, students will integrate the theory and evidence from course material with their service experience and research findings. This seminar is offered only in the fall; however, students will be encouraged to continue their service to the after-school program during the spring semester through a 1-credit ESS service-learning option. *Please note: students may need to provide their own transportation to/from the after-school program site, though every effort will be made to carpool or to include sites that are within walking distance of campus.
