Encouraging Early Literacy: An Integrated Language Approach to Reading and Writing in N-3
"Encouraging Early Literacy" is a carefully and clearly elaborated description of how to implement a whole language approach to literacy with the young child from kindergarten through grade three. Dr. Schwartz presents a clear review of the theory and research in the field, applies that to classroom practice, and outlines important trends in early learning and language acquisition. The heart of the book, "The Program in Action," concentrates on school programs for different developmental levels, on establishing a literacy plan for children as young as three years, and on ways of engaging children in experiences with written language. Throughout, the emphasis is on the fact that children's needs rather than their grade levels should determine instructional strategies and materials.
