Synopsis

Teaching and Learning Communication, Language and Literacy by Dr. Ann C. Browne

Teaching and Learning Communication, Language and Literacy is a comprehensive guide to the teaching and learning of communication, language and literacy in the foundation stage (3-5 years). It draws on research findings and good practice to provide practical guidance about working with young children in nursery and reception classes. The book examines how young children develop as learners and users of language and literacy and the contribution that home and school make to their learning. It locates learning in a play based curriculum and provides a rationale for making play both a context and a resource for learning. It also takes account of recent policy initiatives such as the Curriculum Guidance for the Foundation Stage, the organization for literacy in reception classes and the foundation stage assessment profile. Throughout the book a distinction is made between the organization and activities that are appropriate to nursery and reception children. The book contains practical suggestions about activities and resources including ways of working with environmental print and found texts, ICT, TV and video as well as books. The role of adults in supporting and extending learning is considered in detail.

Reviews

'In her usual accessible fashion, Ann Browne has written a book that provides support and guidance for both students and practitioners in a range of settings....The whole text manages to combine exploration of theory interwoven with references to documentation followed by practical examples of activities that might foster particular skills, knowledge or understanding' - Early Years

`This text offers sound and detailed guidance on all aspects of communication, language and literacy in the early years...[The author's] helpful message about nurturing positive attitudes to young children's learning permeates the entire text...This could become one of those books that we all need to own and refer to regularly' - Marian Whitehead, language and early years consultant'
