Learning To Read And Write : Developmentally Appropriate Practices For Young Children (Book) by Susan B. Neuman, Carol Copple & Sue Bredekamp


This book gives the International Reading Association (IRA) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) joint position statement on “Learning to Read and Write, Developmentally Appropriate Practices for Young Children.” The authors translate the philosophy into teaching practices under eight major themes: the power and pleasure of literacy, the literate environment, language development, building knowledge and comprehension, knowledge of print, types of text, phonological awareness, and letters and words. There is also an emphasis on assessment and what needs to happen to support and promote literacy in early childhood. (1999) (Content)
