Unprecedented in the field, this book is for anyone who will work with preschool children in emergent literacy settings, and it has the further aim of giving volunteers and future teachers a realistic view of what teaching is like, showing pathways they may follow into teaching and related professions after their volunteering is done. Book jacket.
Accessible and engaging, this book has been written out of concern that far too many children in the United States are not acquiring language and literacy skills to an adequate degree. The National Reading Panel report and the No Child Left Behind legislation have put children's success in reading on everyone's agenda, and early intervention has become a key component of literacy development. This book will guide those interested in working toward that goal.
Intervening for Literacy: The Joy of Reading to Young Children shows those working with young readers why literacy matters, how it develops, what they need to know about early intervention for literacy development, and what they can do to help.
