Developing the Communication Nature of Reading.
Blass, Rosanne J.; And Others
Noting that the idea of reading as a natural language communication process has been well established by research, this paper identifies learning strategies and suggests teaching methods for developing the young child's awareness of the communication nature of reading. The paper concludes that learning strategies based on imitation, drawing, and graphic imagery, as well as the use of environmental print, reading to children, and language experience activities that encourage scribbling, drawing, and writing, will help children to master both oral and written language.
