Early Childhood Curriculum for All Learners: Integrating Play and Literacy Activities is designed to teach early childhood professionals about the latest research on play and early literacy and then to show them practical methods for adapting this research to everyday classroom practices that will encourage the development of learning skills. The authors link solid, play-based research to specific developmentally appropriate practices. By combining these two areas, the text demonstrates that academic learning and play activities are highly compatible, and that children can and do develop academic skills through play. In addition, the text focuses on socio-dramatic play, a recently acknowledged, essential aspect of child-initiated play interactions. It provides specific strategies that link these interactive behaviors with the early academic skills needed for the initial primary grades. Implementation of the information presented in this book will enable children to experience a richer transition into primary education classrooms.

The field of early literacy has seen significant recent advances in theory, research, and practice. These volumes bring together leading authorities to report on current findings, integrate insights from different disciplinary perspectives, and explore ways to provide children with the strongest possible literacy foundations in the first 6 years of life. The Handbook first addresses broad questions about the nature of emergent literacy, summarizing current knowledge on cognitive pathways, biological underpinnings, and the importance of cultural contexts. Chapters in subsequent sections examine various strands of knowledge and skills that emerge as children become literate, as well as the role played by experiences with peers and families. Particular attention is devoted to the challenges involved in making schools work for all children, including members of linguistic and ethnic minority groups and children living in poverty. Finally, approaches to instruction, assessment, and early intervention are described, and up-to-date research on their effectiveness is presented.

The unique focus of this text integrates a constructivist/emergent literacy perspective with "science-based" instructional practices that have proved successful in supporting children's reading, writing, and speaking development. "Teaching Language and Literacy: Preschool Through the Elementary Grades "begins with a brief overview of the recent key national policies and initiatives that have had a significant impact on the teaching of reading and writing at the preschool level. Renowned and respected authors, Christie, Enz, and Vukelich, describe a continuum of approaches to reading instruction, ranging from emergent literacy to Scientifically-Based Reading Research. They also present their vision of a "blended" approach to teaching literacy that includes the best elements of these diverging views as well as a set of principles to guide the effective teaching of literacy in preschool and elementary classrooms. New to this Edition NEW! Increased coverage on oral language with a new section on preschool and kindergarten vocabulary instruction and a new chapter on teaching vocabulary at the elementary grade levels help students learn many new strategies for building children's knowledge of word meanings--a key foundation for reading comprehension. NEW! Special features at the end of most chapters discuss strategies for adapting instruction for ELL students, approaches for teaching literacy to children with special needs, and tips on promoting family literacy. NEW! Increased emphasis on direct teaching of phonics, fluency, and comprehension strategies prepares students for the heavy emphasis that these skills receive in the elementary grades. NEW! In-depth coverage of new federal and state literacy initiatives and expanded coverage of standardized literacy assessments prepares teachers for the new emphasis on skills and testing in today's schools.
