A "holistic," developmental approach to teaching emergent readers from pre-Kindergarten through the primary grades. This text presents the latest research findings in the field of emergent literacy, linking these findings directly to early childhood education theory in a way that is easy-to-understand and apply, with numerous illustrations of ways to implement these findings in the classroom. Coverage follows development from infancy through independent reading and writing...explaining the theory behind developmentally appropriate practice describing these teaching techniques within home and classroom environments. Emphasis is on the constructivist approach to gaining knowledge through exploration and discovery. Recent breakthroughs in understanding children's self-initiated reading and writing activities also help explain a child-centered method of reading instruction.From the Back Cover:
