Literacy Learning in the Early Years
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
This introduction to early literacy learning covers the often neglected field of literacy needs of children aged 0-5 years, as well as the early school years up to age 8. The authors take a socio-cultural approach to literacy learning, emphasizing the importance of understanding the various contexts in which young children are exposed to and involved in literary practices. They present different perspectives on literacy learning, including a chapter on critical literacies and another on using information communicatin technologies with young children. Literacy is understood broadly and readers are encouraged to explore a range of print and other media with children. Each chapter contains questions for reflection and outlines ways in which early childhood professionals can help young children learn literacy.
