A framework for early literacy instruction : aligning standards to developmental patterns and student behaviors : pre-K through kindergarten by Elena Bodrova( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is designed to establish consistency in the definition and format to be used in developing early literacy standards and benchmarks. It articulates a set of standards and benchmarks that is based on current national and state standards documents and that reflects the foundational knowledge and developmental differences representative of the research on early literacy development and the prekindergarten and kindergarten levels. It also provides sufficient and appropriate information aligned with the standards and benchmarks to aid prekindergarten and kindergarten teachers in assessing the early literacy development of their students. For standard 1, "Demonstrates competence in the general skills and strategies of the reading process," five benchmarks are outlined. For standard 2, "Demonstrates competence in the general skills and strategies of the writing process," three benchmarks are established. Appendixes contain a list of 72 sources on research and theory of early childhood development, a list of 25 national and state standards documents reviewed, and a list of definitions. (Sld)
Early literacy : new issues and new challenges : policy brief by Elena Bodrova( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This policy brief, intended for education policymakers, enumerates concerns about literacy which have surfaced in recent years. The brief notes that: (1) American schools have seen enormous changes in student demographics; (2) increased testing of third and fourth graders has provided concrete evidence for what was, in years past, a suspected but unverified problem; and (3) with the advent of a more complex, technologically driven society, higher level skills--including literacy--have become an absolute requirement for personal success and a well functioning economy. Policymakers will soon deal with a variety of issues in early literacy that are moving to the forefront of the nation's education agenda, specifically: What should young children know and be able to do? What are the best ways to facilitate literacy development in young children? How should the literacy development of young children be measured? and How should teachers be prepared to provide effective instruction for young children? The brief discusses each of these issues in turn and stresses that the demand for a literate society will only grow in the years and decades ahead, as will the challenge to provide effective early literacy education. Contains 8 resources and 12 references. (NKA)

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph, one in a series describing innovative educational practice, presents a case study of the Tools of the Mind project. This project, the result of collaboration between Russian and American education researchers, used the Vygotskian approach to create a series of tools or strategies for teachers to use in supporting the development of early literacy, including meta-cognitive and meta-linguistic skills as well as other foundational literacy skills. The monograph describes the development and piloting of the project, including the creation of the Early Learning Advisor, a computerized assessment system that provides direct advice to teachers on the developmental levels of their individual students, and gives them suggestions about how to apply the innovative teaching concepts in their daily work in the classroom. The monograph also discusses an empirical evaluation of the project, which revealed that the strategies had a positive effect on literacy achievement in young children. (Contains 24 references.) (Ev)
