Learning To Read and Write: A Place To Start.
This book discusses research on learning to talk, read, and write and explores activities to support the development of these crucial competencies. The book's discussion of research is divided into two chapters: "Supporting Early Literacy: The Preschool Years" and "Supporting Early Literacy: The Primary Years." Following the two chapters on literacy development are profiles of five northwest schools, chosen because they demonstrate innovative and culturally responsive educational practices. Next, a section has materials suitable for handouts in workshops for both parents and teachers. These materials are intended to encourage those involved in designing and implementing literacy strategies and activities to engage in dialogue and reflection, activities essential for learning and teaching for understanding. Contains an approximately 250-item bibliography. (CR)
