ECS 580 Topic 1 Speech and Language Development

Speech and language development is integral for future learning success. It is the educators’ responsibility to recognize milestones in learning and to differentiate developmental delays from learning English as a second language. Early intervention, especially in hearing and sight, leads to higher likelihood of success in the students’ education.

In a 1,000-1,250 word essay, address the following related to the speech and language development of children:

  • Briefly discuss development of written language and spoken language.
  • Describe how developmental delays or disabilities can affect children’s speech and language development.
  • Describe how culture, family background, and bilingual language development can affect children’s speech and language development.
  • Describe three strategies that can be used to enhance children’s speech and language development.
  • Provide an example of how the three strategies described above could be modified to address the unique needs of ESL students and students with speech impairments.

Support your essay with 3-5 scholarly resources.

ECS 580 Topic 2 Clinical Field Experience A: Making Connections, K-3

Allocate at least 5 hours in the field to support this field experience.

The ability to effectively integrate all disciplines in student learning, while recognizing developmental milestones, is complex. Use this field experience to observe and collaborate with your mentor regarding the many facets to teaching in a K-3 classroom.

Observe an inclusive K-3 early childhood or elementary site, focusing on ELA, social studies, and art lessons, and paying close attention to the relationship between reading and writing. Discuss with the mentor teacher how he or she purposefully integrates reading and writing into lessons.

Using any remaining field experience hours, assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon your observations, discussion, and instructional support. Include the following:

  1. How did your field experience teacher integrate reading and writing?
  2. What was done for reading? What was done for writing? How were they connected to each other during instruction?
  3. What was done for social studies and art? Were they integrated into other curriculum? If they were not observed, how could you incorporate social studies and art into the lesson?

ECS 580 Topic 2 Literacy Lesson Plan

Reading and writing are reciprocal learning processes. Using these skills interchangeably in a classroom promotes language development.

Using the “COE Lesson Plan Template,” create a literacy lesson plan that demonstrates the reciprocity between reading and writing. Base the lesson upon one reading and one writing ELA standard from your state, and the students in your field experience classroom.

In the Summary section of your lesson plan, briefly explain why it is important to teach explicit literacy skills and how you will connect and extend these learning progressions in the home.

In the Differentiation section, identify specific researched-based support strategies for one student with exceptionalities and tie the strategy to the lesson. For example, if students are learning how to write the letter T, provide a dotted letter T for students who struggle with writing, or provide a pencil grip for students struggling to hold a pencil. As an example, use students from your field experience classroom who are receiving special education services. (Please do not use children’s real names to protect confidentiality.) For clarification, explain the delay or disability on the lesson plan.

While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

ECS 580 Topic 6 Time to Present

Embedding literacy development in the classroom is an important element of a students’ comprehension and retention of the content. Educators should be cognizant of students who are hesitant to speak in front of their peers or, on the other hand, overzealous in their speech. Presentations are one way educators can encourage speech, while instilling good listening skills in the students.

Review the lesson plan you created from Topic 2 or Topic 3 and select one lesson to revise. In your revision, include at least one listening and speaking standard from your state’s ELA standards, and a speaking skills activity that requires the students to speak or present to the class at some point during the lesson. The lesson plan should also provide support for students who are hesitant to present in front of their classmates. Take into consideration the school’s socioeconomic level, culture, and overall climate when designing the activity.

In the Differentiation section, identify support strategies that could be used to assist an ESL student and a student with a speech and mild cognitive impairment.

While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
