Overview

Early Childhood Language Arts, Fifth Edition, offers a more comprehensive look at early childhood literacy education than any other text, integrating the language arts – listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

In response to the call for evidence-based reading instruction, the Fifth Edition includes research-based teaching strategies and information on brain research, bilingual education, technology, and the media’s influences on young children. The text provides instructors with a synthesis of the information on language arts gleaned from research on emergent literacy, early childhood education, and special education. It also underscores what is being emphasized in early childhood teacher accreditation programs; namely, responding to the increasingly diverse needs of young language learners in inclusive settings, working with parents and families, and collaborating with professionals in other fields. In addition, it now has more in-depth coverage of children’s literature, diverse language learners, and pedagogy in the language arts through the three chapter features, Links with Literature, English Language Learners (ELLs), and How do I…?

New to this Edition:

  • NEW! Expanded coverage of children's literature through the Links with Literature feature, enabling instructors to use just one book for a course that combines early literacy with children's literature.
  • NEW! Marginal notes have been completely revised and updated to address four different aspects of language arts instruction: Standards in Education (the standards of leading professional associations that govern instruction in the language arts); Brain and Language (informs students of the implications of neuroscience research for early childhood educators); Infants and Toddlers (provides perspective on language development by reporting research findings on the youngest learners); and Research and Report (suggests individual investigation outside the classroom that culminates in a small group, in-class activity focused on a timely topic related each chapter’s content).
  • NEW! English Language Learners provides the very latest research-based recommendations for working with students who are acquiring English, such as the relationship between oral language proficiency in the child’s native language and in English.
  • NEW! How do I…? offers a step-by-step explanation of how to teach a particular skill, such as introducing new vocabulary words.
  • NEW! MyEducationLab offers the instructor access to short videos that support effective instruction and student engagement.
