An integrated language arts approach to literacy development, by renowned author Lesley Mandel Morrow, Literacy Development in the Early Years, 8/e integrates perspectives about how children learn literacy skills in grades pre-K through three that gives pre-service and in-service teachers a wealth of valuable information for making children active participants in the process of literacy development.


Now in print for 25 years, this widely popular text was one of the first books on the topic of early literacy. Author Lesley Mandel Morrow utilizes her own research and the research of others as well as her experiences as a classroom teacher, reading specialist, mother, and grandmother to consider historical theories and philosophies about how children learn, policy changes in teaching reading, new laws and challenges in the area of testing and assessment, the place of diversity in today’s classrooms, teaching English language learners, and more. The text has a wealth of valuable information for both pre- and in-service teachers, prompting them to involve children as active participants in the process of their literacy development. The book discusses constructivist problem-solving teaching and more explicit systematic instruction, encouraging teaching reading, writing, listening, thinking, and viewing at the same time while using each skill to develop the others. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video and assessments.
