Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"What do early childhood educators really need to know, do, and understand in order to work effectively and compassionately with the very young?”  This is the focus of Mary Renck Jalongo’s approach to her widely popular Early Childhood Language Arts. In it, she helps teachers become well informed about young children’s language development, strategies to use to support language growth, and the essential elements for a novice teacher to mature into a master teacher. Distinctive from many other early literacy books in that it includes oral language rather than concentrating on literacy in print, the approach is to integrate language arts and other subject areas, including the fine arts.

 

 This new edition features:

  • Readers get support for more effective teaching with user-friendly, interactive Web 2.0 teaching tools featuring an annotated list of several interactive technology tools, including apps and websites.
  • Teachers working with young children receive free or inexpensive apps and websites developmentally suited for their students.
  • A more in-depth look at a top-rated technology tool is provided in the Focus on . . . feature. It shows how the tool can be used in the classroom to support literacy learning at three different levels: prereader, emergent reader, and independent reader.
  • Teachers have access to an annotated list of recently published, high-quality picture books, including age and grade-level recommendations.
  • Throughout the book the author has updated features including:
    • Fact Files–current statistics and research findings introducing each chapter.
    • Margin Notes–revised to address four aspects of language arts instruction: Standards and Teaching, Brain and Language, Infants and Toddlers, and Research and Report notes.
