Stanulis, Randi Nevins; Manning, Brenda H.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v30 n1 p3-8 Fall 2002
This article describes features of the verbal and nonverbal environment of the early childhood classroom. Children's literature is used as a vehicle for understanding: (1) how teachers talk to children; (2) how teachers allow children to talk to each other; and (3) how teachers help children talk to themselves about their learning and participation. The teacher's role as a positive, conscious, and deliberate model of self-regulated learning is promoted. (Author/SD)
