A comprehensive and balanced approach to early literacy instruction (birth - Grade 3) with a focus on integrating language arts

Literacy Development in the Early Years: Helping Children Read and Write explores both the science and art of teaching literacy from birth through Grade 3. It presents a wealth of theory, research, practical strategies, and perspectives about how children learn literacy skills — while recognizing that literacy development is an active process between educators and their students. Renowned author Lesley Mandel Morrow utilizes her own research and experiences as well as the research of others to consider historical theories and philosophies about how children learn, policy changes in teaching reading, new laws and challenges in the area of testing and assessment, the place of diversity in today’s classrooms, teaching English learners, and more.

Reorganized with shorter, easier-to-read chapters, the 9th Edition contains added strategies for developing literacy in writing workshops, reading workshops, independent and partner reading, organizational methods, and comprehension development. Additional assessments allow teachers to carry out a more complete case study of a child’s abilities and needs.

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. MyLab Education gives teacher candidates opportunities to apply theory to practice – better preparing them for success in their future classrooms.
