Where Is NELP Leading Preschool Literacy Instruction? Potential Positives and Pitfalls
Teale, William H.; Hoffman, Jessica L.; Paciga, Kathleen A.
Educational Researcher, v39 n4 p311-315 2010
This article discusses the potential positive and problematic influences of the National Early Literacy Panel (NELP; 2008) report on prekindergarten and kindergarten classroom instructional practice. The authors support the instructional importance of the majority of the foundational skills identified in the NELP report as having "clear and consistently strong relationships with later conventional literacy skills" but also detail a number of concerns about NELP-influenced instructional recommendations drawn to date, arguing that the NELP report is both insufficiently clear and overly narrow with respect to what preschool teachers should be focusing on instructionally in early literacy.
