Language and Literacy Environments in Preschools. Eric Digest by Catherine E Snow( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Because of the variation in support for literacy development in different homes, many children need high-quality preschool and school environments and excellent primary instruction to be sure of reading success. This Digest discusses the research on preschool literacy environments and their contributions to reading skills development. The overall quality of a child care program has been found to be an important determinant of positive effects on language and preliteracy skills. Studies that have focused on the language environments in preschool classrooms suggest that the quality of adult-child discourse is important, as is the amount of such interaction. Modest enhancements of the quality of classroom experiences show positive effects on children's language development and preliteracy skills. Given the pervasive evidence of differences in language and emergent literacy skills associated with class, culture, and linguistic background, it is heartening that preschool has been shown to benefit children's performance in school.

Preparing our teachers : opportunities for better reading instruction by Dorothy Strickland( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Today's teachers face huge challenges, especially for teaching reading in the primary grades. A recent study reveals that fewer than half of American teachers report feeling "very well prepared" to meet such challenges. This book seeks to improve that statistic by extracting practical information from the report issued by the National Research Council in 1998, "Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children." The book outlines what classroom teachers need to know and what they need to be able to do to give children in preschool through Grade 4 the essential opportunities to become good readers. It discusses what teacher education programs need to do to make their students good teachers of good readers and looks at what schools and school districts need to do to keep their teachers up to date for teaching reading. Chapters in the book are: Introduction--Teachers of Young Children: The Agents and Champions of Literacy; (1) From Shopping Lists to Poetry: Forms and Functions of Written Language; (2) Making Meaning: Language Development and Comprehension; (3) Sounds, Letters, and Words: How Print Works; (4) Moving to Success: Motivating Children to Read; and (5) Anticipating Challenges: Assessment, Prevention, and Intervention. Each chapter contains resource lists and sample activities for teacher learning. The Introduction contains notes and a resource list. (Nka)

Bilingual Infant/Toddler Environments: Supporting Language & Learning in Our Youngest Children. a Guide for Migrant & SeasonalHead Start Programs by Robert A Stechuk( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Guide is specifically intended for staff in Migrant and Seasonal Head Start (mshs) programs, which are funded to provide comprehensive child development services to the children of migrant farm workers from birth through compulsory school age. The authors attempt to navigate the research on first and second language acquisition and development on infants and toddlers, consistent with the Head Start definition of "infants," (I.E., children younger than 36 months of age) (acf, 1996). They also identify and attempt to respond to key questions and concerns obtained from mshs program staff. At its core, this Guide aims to integrate information about children's developmental progress in acquiring one or more languages in infancy with practical considerations of how adult caregivers can best support that development. The author's aim is to produce as practical and as meaningful a resource as possible. Bilingual Infant/Toddler Environments (bi/te) mshs Program Questionnaire is appended
