"This book explores how to prevent reading difficulties in the context of social, historical, cultural, and biological factors."

Language and literacy environments in preschools by Catherine E Snow( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries 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 )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries 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)

Noting the increasing number of students who cannot read, this book shows parents, educators, caregivers, policymakers, and others how to promote the reading success of young children. It focuses on children from birth through the first 5 years of formal schooling, and includes practical guidelines, program descriptions, advice on resources, and strategies for use in everyday life (including practical literacy and language activities for parents and their young children) and activities and practices for classrooms. Following a brief introduction, the first chapter discusses the process of reading. This chapter outlines the characteristics of good readers, circumstances that promote reading, and the kinds of opportunities that enable children to be successful readers. The next chapter focuses on children through age four. This chapter covers the key aspects of language and literacy and activities for very young children; the role of home, day care, and preschool environments in literacy development; and language and literacy activities in preschool. The third chapter looks at children in kindergarten through third grade and provides families and communities a basis for understanding and helping as teachers work with children at this level of reading development. This chapter describes the elements of effective classroom instruction in the early grades. The last chapter addresses reading difficulties and features a variety of interventions to help struggling readers, such as tutoring, pull-out remediation programs, and dramatic school restructuring.
