Overview

With its wealth of valuable information for making children active participants in the process of literacy development, this integrated language arts approach brings early childhood perspectives on how children learn together with the literacy skills and strategies teachers need to make it all happen. Here, renowned author Leslie Morrow presents both theoretical and research-based rationales, plus extensive practical applications to show how literacy development is an active process between children and adults–and helps pre- and in-service teachers grasp the scope and complexity of early literacy development. Comprehensive and balanced, the book covers problem solving, comprehension, and phonics and phonemic awareness, giving readers a complete picture of emergent literacy.
