- Imagine you are a preschool director meeting with a parent who is considering enrolling her 4-year-old in your program. She asks how you will help her child learn to read and describes workbooks for letter and sound practice that she buys for her child to use at home. Write your response, including concepts that are important for this parent to understand about the roles of oral language, concepts of print, phonemic awareness, and alphabet knowledge in an early literacy curriculum. Include and explain language and literacy terms in the script that can aid the parent's understanding, tactfully including your thinking about the workbooks she has described.
- Summarize the “debate” between proponents of emergent literacy and of Scientifically Based Reading Research (SBRR) by explaining essential differences in these theoretical perspectives. Then, in your own words, make a case for a balanced early literacy curriculum, citing evidence from the learning resources to support your reasoning.
- The NIEER Preschool Policy Brief identifies five issues related to how early childhood programs can “foster the skills and abilities that children need to become successful readers and writers and how reading difficulties can be prevented” (p. 3). Choose three of these issues and explain how each will influence your practice as an early childhood professional supporting young children's early literacy development.
