EARLY CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCE IN THE LANGUAGE ARTS: EARLY LITERACY is a tried and true text aiming to help produce teachers who matter, teachers who are prepared, and teachers who are knowledgeable companions in exploring and sharing literature and language experiences with young children. The text includes the most current national legislative efforts, as well as addressing public concern and interest in young children’s language and foundational literacy skills. It also thoroughly addresses the interrelation of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and viewing language arts areas. Students will learn specific activities that include stories, poems, finger plays, and puppetry that they can utilize in a classroom setting. They also will learn curriculum for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, with the theory followed up by how-to suggestions. Cultural diversity is addressed, as well as program planning ideas for English language learners and special needs children. Activity sections and the companion website encourage discussion and research.
