Helping Young Children Learn Language and Literacy is about teaching the language arts in a reader-friendly, child-focused way. It provides pre-service and in-service teachers with sound instructional strategies to facilitate children’s reading, writing, speaking, and listening development from birth through kindergarten. Each chapter identifies clear learning goals for readers and offers opportunities for self-assessment. Recognizing that children are at the heart of good language and literacy teaching, the book focuses on four central themes: a perspective on teaching and learning that blends constructivism and science-based instruction, respect for diversity, instruction-based assessment, and family involvement in literacy learning.

 

The Fourth Edition includes coverage of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, Grades K-12 and contains a number of new features that reflect recent developments in the field of language arts education and that will assist students in learning key concepts and strategies. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded videos and assessments.
