Increased Implementation of Emergent Literacy Screening in Pre-Kindergarten
Invernizzi, Marcia; Landrum, Timothy J.; Teichman, Avery; Townsend, Monika
Early Childhood Education Journal, v37 n6 p437-446 Apr 2010
The recent emphasis on universal prekindergarten programs, coupled with ongoing concern about children's early literacy development in the first years of school, carry significant implications for how preschool educators program for literacy and assess literacy growth. We discuss the evolving role of literacy development in expanded preschool, examine key features of literacy assessments with particular attention to the content that might be assessed in preschool, and provide as an example one preschool literacy assessment tool that is in widespread use in the United States. We discuss the policy and practice implications of the growing emphasis on literacy assessment in preschoolers.
