    Research shows that literacy—the ability to listen, speak, read, and write - begins developing long before children enter elementary school. This book helps early childhood educators nurture that development. It begins with an argument for offering children literacy-rich activities and creating an environment for carrying out those activities. It then focuses on enjoyable and effective ways to build essential skills, such as oral language and phonemic awareness, and create dramatic play areas, book nooks, writing centers, and other literacy-rich spaces. Includes photographs, student work, and straight talk about kids and learning, Literacy and the Youngest Learner is destined to become a classic. 240 pages.

    Inside Information

    by Nell K. Duke

    Most teachers understand the importance of teaching children to read and write informational text. But how do they do it effectively? And in a way that is truly engaging? Nell K. Duke has the answer. With this book she shows teachers how to build skills in reading and writing major informational text types—informative/explanatory persuasive: opinion procedural/how-to nonfiction narrative and biography—through project-based instruction. Children read
    and write for real purposes and real audiences on topics that matter to them. In the process they make a difference in the world.
    Drawing from the latest research Duke explains how to design and carry out instruction providing a blueprint for developing project-based units from start to finish—units that move children through a logical progression of phases:
    • Project Launch
    • Reading and Research
    • Writing and Research
    • Revision and Editing
    • Presentation and Celebration

    Packed with clear precise connections to Common Core State Standards classroom-tested teaching ideas and the work of practicing teachers and their students this book will be an essential resource for years to come. 208 pages.
