Description

Filmed in several lively preschool and kindergarten classrooms, this film reviews the underlying cognitive, social and physical requirements for all formal education and then presents the literacy specific understandings and skills that are being widely cited, but not always adequately described. With instructive visuals from exemplary classrooms, serious scholarship and clever graphics are combined to introduce students to the current vocabulary and concepts of the development of literacy. Rejecting the either/or approach of the reading wars, this film presents an integrated vision of how the precursors of literacy grow from appropriate experiences provided by thoughtful adults to the children in their care.
