The School of Continuing Education and University Resource Centre of Azim Premji University, Bangalore announces a Course on the Pedagogy of Early Reading and Writing. This course is the latest addition to our list of in service programmes, specifically designed for the faculty and teacher educators of State Councils of Educational Research and Training (SCERTs), Colleges of Teacher Education(CTEs), District Institutes of Education and Training (DIETs) and the Resource Persons of non-Government organizations (NGOs) working in the field of Education and Development. This 6 day Certificate Course on Pedagogy of Early Reading and Writing will be conducted from 20th November to 25th November 2017.

The world is going through a phase of rethinking about early literacy and its relation to learning. In the recent days live debates about the relevance of reading and writing across the curriculum, as a window to all learning has woken us up to the disturbing reality that classroom pedagogy has fallen short of global discourses and practices. Literacy pedagogy needs to transform itself from its understanding as a mechanical skill to be understood as tools of the mind, a process for thinking and articulating ones thoughts. Somehow schools do not teach children to read and write in such a way as to go beyond information, search for books, extend their learning and become lifelong readers. There is a growing awareness that this understanding needs to inform classroom pedagogy in the D El Ed classrooms. This has led to the designing of this course which will prompt teacher educators to examine the current understanding of literacy pedagogy and to explore the comprehensive approach to literacy pedagogy.
