Overview

"The third edition of Teaching Language and Literacy: Preschool through the Elementary Grades integrates a constructivist/emergent literacy perspective with science-based instructional practices. This unique focus on theories and techniques that have proven to be successful helps pre-service and in-service teachers translate principles into classroom practice." Perfect for any course with a focus on language, the book covers the development and teaching of both oral and written language in preschool through elementary grades. Its emphasis on diversity includes special features that describe how teachers can adjust instruction to meet the needs of second-language and bilingual learners. In addition, the third edition focuses on scientifically-based reading research (SBRR) throughout, blending these findings with other perspectives in a "value added" approach to language and literacy teaching and learning.
