Free Delivery within Australia
Children's early experiences of literacy have a major influence on how they continue to learn literacy as they grow older.
With chapters from both Australian and UK authors, Literacy learning in the early years is an ideal professional reference and student text.
Children enter early childhood settings and school with a wealth of knowledge and understandings of literacy. It is critical that early childhood professionals and teachers recognise and build on this learning.
Literacy learning in the early years offers a practical introduction to literacy issues for early childhood professionals and teachers working with children aged 0-8, in child care, preschool and school contexts.
The authors take a sociocultural approach to literacy learning, emphasising the importance of understanding the various contexts in which young children are involved in literacy practices. They explore a range of literacy issues that early childhood professionals and teachers are facing in the 21st century.
These issues include:
Literacy is understood broadly and readers are encouraged to explore a range of print and other media with children.
