The unique focus of this book integrates constructivist learning, diversity, and instruction-based assessment, and helps translate principles into practice for teachers of early literacy.


The book 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 Vukelich, Christie, and Enz 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. The authors end this introduction with a set of principles to guide the effective teaching of literacy in preschool and kindergarten classrooms.

A Letter to Students from the Authors

Dear Student,

Helping Young Children Learn Language and Literacy, 2nd edition, is about teaching the language arts –about facilitating reading, writing, speaking, and listening development for children, ages birth through kindergarten. It is intended for preservice and inservice preschool and kindergarten teachers and administrators. The first edition of our book was written in late 1990s and was heavily influenced by the emergent literacy perspective that was dominant at the time. This constructivist view maintains that the best way to teach early literacy is to provide settings and experiences that provide rich, meaningful experiences with language and print. Key emergent literacy strategies include extended classroom discourse, print-rich environments, shared reading, shared writing, and literacy-enriched play. We still believe that these strategies form the core of an effective early literacy program. However, over that past decade, a series of significant national educational events have impacted early literacy education, including the standards movement, No Child Left Behind legislation, and the use of scientifically-based reading research to make curricular and instructional decisions. The new second edition of our book reflects these important new trends and explains how this new skills-based approach to literacy instruction can be integrated with the earlier constructivist perspective. We advocate blending scientifically-based reading research with the emergent literacy perspective to create a ‘value added’ approach to language and literacy teaching and learning. The second edition contains new content focusing on the “core” knowledge and skills that young children must have to become successful readers: oral vocabulary, phonological awareness, and alphabet knowledge. Vignettes demonstrate how these skills are directly and systematically taught to young children. We also provide examples of how emergent literacy strategies such as shared reading and shared writing are being used in these same classrooms. We believe that this type of balanced approach to early literacy instruction is the best way to prepare young children to become successful readers and writers.

We think that you will find our book to be very user friendly. We provide definitions for key terms and study questions at the beginnings of each chapter and concise summaries at the end. We provide many vignettes, case studies, and “trade secret” examples from master teachers to make learning and teaching come to life. Each chapter ends with a “Linking Knowledge to Practice” feature that helps connect research and theory with the practices that you will observe in preschool and kindergarten classrooms.

We hope our text finds its way into your professional library and will become a helpful resource for you as you develop or continue your development as a professional educator.

Sincerely,

Carol, Jim, and Billie

This book is horrible if you are trying to use it for any type of scholarly type of application. This was the required text for a Cognitive and Language Development class I took at college which resulted in so much frustration!
There is NO glossary.
There is NO index.
There are several key words and concepts that the book gives no explaination of. (Example, there is zero definition of what they mean by 'scaffolding' as a tool to help children. It is just assumed that you know how to do that.)
There is an entire chapter that the professor thought too awful to even use as the basis for our class discussion so we disregarded it and had to 'wing it' essentially by pulling resources from other places since this text was so lacking.
That being said, there is a lot of good information in several of the chapters. But sadly due to the lack of glossary/index it is nearly impossible to find again.
Also, this book is 100% in greyscale. No color at all...just an FYI!

I ordered this book for a class that I am taking. It's a good textbook with appropriate content. I did not, however, care for the print/paper in the book; I found it to be very difficult to read. It didn't help that all of the pictures and illustrations were also in black and white. This was a big disappointment to me since they had used such a great photo on the cover. If you're looking for a book about Language Arts/ECE I would suggest Early Childhood Experiences In Language Arts by Jeanne M. Machado, 7th ed. as an alternative.

This book came in ok condition. Used! I have now high lighted many things...
There are useful ideas and practical information. Its helpful for someone who is starting out learning and children's literacy and language skill. Useful strategies especially for working with parents.

The content has been fine but the quality of the paper is atrocious! The paper is so cheap and thin that I cannot use a highlighter as it will go through to the other side. For spending so much money on one text, it is disappointing!

I didn't like that it was so long because some of what I read was hard to understand , when came to certain language that was used. Certainly the professionals under stood the big words. To someone who is just learning to understand how different things work, or what is needed to help children in language and literacy. I feel like some things should been said plainly. Over all I learned a lot and the book had great ideas. Anyone taking a language and literacy class will probably use this book.

Of course I wouldn't like text books because they're text books. However, the way that my teacher used it to teach us was great. It really made me love the book and I actually kept it!

I rented the kindle version for the class and overall I was happy with it. It provided me with clear text that helped me through my class.
