Once again, Brownieland Pictures and the Atlanta Speech School have teamed up to create videos for the Rollins Center for Language and Literacy’s Cox Campus. Cox Campus’ free interactive courses and tools are designed to equip any adult interacting with children—from birth through age nine—in ways that support language and literacy development. From nurses to families to educators to leaders, Cox Campus provides straightforward learning paths to cultivate environments, relationships, and practices conducive to learning to read. Check out the new courses below!
DLL2 | Connecting the Dots for Dual Language Learners Throughout the Preschool Day
Dual language learners use ALL their language resources to make meaning of their world and the new things they’re learning. Their classrooms should reflect this development! Learn how to help connect the dots for DLLs by supporting their learning and participation during morning meeting, story time, centers, small groups, and transitions. Learn more HERE.
