Author information

Building crucial bridges between theory, research, and practice, this volume brings together leading authorities on the literacy development of young children. The Handbook examines the full range of factors that shape learning in and out of the classroom, from basic developmental processes to family and sociocultural contexts, pedagogical strategies, curricula, and policy issues. Highlights of Volume 3 include cutting-edge perspectives on English language learning; innovative ways to support print knowledge, phonological awareness, and other code-related skills; and exemplary approaches to early intervention and teacher professional development. This book will be important reading for students and researchers in reading, early childhood education, child development, educational psychology, and linguistics; reading specialists, staff developers, and classroom teachers; policymakers focusing on literacy and early intervention. It also serves as a text in advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses.

Review quote

"This Handbook is a virtual library of cutting-edge knowledge on all aspects of the fast-moving field of emergent literacy. Like Volumes 1 and 2, Volume 3 helps us understand how literacy and language unfold for diverse populations of children. The book describes promising avenues for assessment and intervention as well as the professional development that is necessary to bring effective practices to scale. This Handbook will be a 'go-to' resource for the entire range of professionals and students seeking to nurture the next generation of successful readers." - Judith J. Carta, Juniper Gardens Children's Project, University of Kansas, USA "This book offers fresh evidence and rich insights about how we, as a society, can better advance the oral and written language skills of young children. Breathtaking in scope, the volume presents new understandings of how children puzzle through the elements of language and identifies what programs work best to nurture early learning. Truly a 'must read' for educators, developmentalists, policymakers, and all those who aim to give young children a head start." - Bruce Fuller, Graduate School of Education, University of California, Berkeley, USA
