Building the Components of Literacy Outlined in Online Course from CCEI

ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), a distance learning professional development and certificate provider, offers Lit101: The Read-Aloud Process: Building the Components of Literacy as an online no-cost trial child care training course to new CCEI users during the month of October.

This course is about the preparation and skills a teacher needs in order to ensure that read-alouds in the early childhood environment accomplish the literacy building goals of a good early childhood curriculum. One of the jobs as an early childhood educator is to teach children the pre-reading and reading skills necessary to succeed in school and life. Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to identify ways to promote phonological awareness through read-alouds, define and identify benefits of the “read-aloud process”, identify recommended teacher preparation strategies and good in-class pre-reading activities, and much more.

“Read-alouds are a key component of the reading process for young children,” says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “This course helps childcare professionals build important early literacy skills that the children in their care can use for the rest of their lives.”

This one-hour training course is available as a trial course to new users with CCEI account creation in October. Current CCEI users with active, unlimited annual subscriptions can enroll in professional development courses at no additional cost when logged in to their CCEI account. Users without subscriptions can purchase child care training courses as block hours through CCEI online enrollment.
