What Television Can (and Can't) Do to Promote Early Literacy Development
Moses, Annie
Young Children, v64 n2 p80-89 Mar 2009
Moses discusses research findings about television, young children, and literacy. She addresses research on a number of topics: How much and what kind of programming do children watch? What is the literacy content in popular children's programming? Does programming send positive or negative messages about literacy? What is television's impact on specific early literacy skills? What can teachers do to make the most of television in promoting literacy development in young children? The author provides a list (by children's ages) of popular children's programming that supports language and literacy, with brief annotations and relevant Web sites. She supplies a teacher checklist for selecting programming for young children.
