Teacher Responsible:
1º Ano | 2º Semestre
Learning objectives
1. Know theoretical and curricular orientations for pre-school education in matters of language consciousness and emergent literacy; 2. Reflect upon these orientations and on the ways through which pre-school children appopriate written language, alongside promoting lingusitic consciousness and language knowledge, recognising the need and relevance of a reflexive and critical attitude; 3. Operacionalize, in an informed way, acquired knowledge and reflection capacity in promoting pedagogical practices that enable conceptions on written language directed to children in pre-school ages.

Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

Theoretical presentation, document analysis, individual and group work will be used. Contact hours aim creating a guiding conceptual framework for activities and resources to discover written language. Theoretical presentations on the contents of the curricular unit and simulating knowledge applied to contexts of pre-school education will also be used. In theoretical-practical classes and of Tutorial orientation students participation is built through work proposals to be developed during autonomous work time from students. These proposals are then brought into the classroom for group discussion and correction. Continuous evaluation also includes, alongside formative evaluation items, the following summative elements: one written test: 60% and a group work, 40%.
