Learning to read becomes a difficult task for many children, particularly if they have not been reared in early childhood settings where literacy-based activities, interactions, or materials are prevalent. This study examined the impact that providing a college-level course in research-based instructional strategies for literacy development to early childhood educators had on the development of early reading skills in the preschool children they taught. In addition, impact on children's rates of literacy skill attainment was examined when a coaching component (i.e., a Literacy Coach) was added. (Contains 2 figures and 5 tables.)
