Presented by Mary Renck Jalongo, Ph.D., educator and author
Contemporary early childhood educators are working with increasingly diverse populations of young children. It is commonplace for a single group of children to represent different languages, cultures, and a wide range of special needs or disabilities. The expectation is that that teachers will be able, not only to engage all learners but also to meet academic standards. Accomplishing this demands familiarity with the research so that teachers can implement evidence-based practices in the classroom.
This webinar has synthesized the research that supports Dr. Jalongo’s book, Literacy for All Young Learners, to identify over 60 different strategies that have evidence of effectiveness in supporting the literacy growth of young children. In addition, each strategy has been differentiated to accommodate young children at different levels of literacy learning.
Learning objectives for this session are:
Participants in the session can expect to learn some very practical ways to enhance the effectiveness of their literacy instruction with young children.
- To identify specific teaching strategies for early literacy instruction that are supported by research
- To gain insight on ways to adjust activities to young children’s varying developmental levels
- To support early childhood educators in reflecting on their pedagogical practices and ways to become even more effective teachers
