From the Back Cover
This book emphasizes an integrated language arts approach to teaching young children literacy, focusing on balanced, constructivist and direct instruction.
Literacy Development in the Early Years presents a theoretical and research-based rationale for its contents, as well as practical applications based on that theory. It embraces integrated language arts and an interdisciplinary approach to literacy development as it addresses developing writing, reading, and oral language in the home and school curriculum. The use of children's literature is emphasized as the most important instructional materials and the joy of early literacy experiences is stressed to ensure lifelong reading habits. Literacy development is viewed as an active process between children and adults to create meaning and real purpose.
For anyone interested in early childhood language arts.
Top Customer Reviews
Ms. Morrow is up-to-date on her research and practices. This book is a good companion for any first-year or experienced teacher. However, I do wish her writing style were improved herself. The reader can get easily bogged down when reading some of these very long chapters.
Why 4 stars?:
Morrow provides some wonderful advice and information on how to best create an environment that will support the literacy of young children. However, her own writing style could use a little bit of improvement to make the text a little more interesting.
