Description : The emerging field of family literacy, which cuts across early childhood education, early literacy development, parent education, adult education, and parent-child literacy interactions, has never had a comprehensive volume that pulls together and integrates its many interacting components. That is the mission of this handbook. It provides scholars, students, policymakers, and practitioners (both inside and outside the field) with an invaluable snapshot of its current boundaries and rapidly growing content. With contributions from experts in each of its component fields, it provides an up-to-date picture of existing family literacy programs, of the research and theories that guide these programs, of current issues, and of likely future directions. Key features of this outstanding new book include the following: *Comprehensive--Whereas many books deal with various components of this broad and loosely coupled field, until now there has never been a book that profiles and integrates its overlapping component fields. *Recommendations for Practice--Information essential to the development of curriculum and instructional strategies is integrated throughout the book. Practical guidance is offered in such diverse and intersecting areas as early literacy, the role of literature and storybook reading in literacy learning, adult learning needs and strategies, and professional development. *Cultural and Family Influences--The book examines cultural and family influences on literacy practices and provides effective ways of responding to family diversity, including the needs of bilingual and immigrant participants. *Program Implementation--Program recommendations cover such distinct topics as integrating the curriculum, enriching early childhood classrooms, enhancing parent-child literacy interactions, and coordinating with other agencies. *Assessment--To promote future research and evaluation, attention has been focused on ways of assessing children, adults, the educational setting, and implementation strategies. This book is intended for professionals (directors and staff) and graduate students in the areas of family literacy, early childhood education, child development, parenting, and adult education, as well as researchers and policymakers in child development and family literacy.

Description : Writing is one of humankind's greatest inventions, and modern societies could not function if their citizens could not read and write. How do skilled readers pick up meaning from markings on a page so quickly, and how do children learn to do so? The chapters in the Oxford Handbook of Reading synthesize research on these topics from fields ranging from vision science to cognitive psychology and education, focusing on how studies using a cognitive approach can shed light on how the reading process works. To set the stage, the opening chapters present information about writing systems and methods of studying reading, including those that examine speeded responses to individual words as well as those that use eye movement technology to determine how sentences and short passages of text are processed. The following section discusses the identification of single words by skilled readers, as well as insights from studies of adults with reading disabilities due to brain damage. Another section considers how skilled readers read a text silently, addressing such issues as the role of sound in silent reading and how readers' eyes move through texts. Detailed quantitative models of the reading process are proposed throughout. The final sections deal with how children learn to read and spell, and how they should be taught to do so. These chapters review research with learners of different languages and those who speak different dialects of a language; discuss children who develop typically as well as those who exhibit specific disabilities in reading; and address questions about how reading should be taught with populations ranging from preschoolers to adolescents, and how research findings have influenced education. The Oxford Handbook of Reading will benefit researchers and graduate students in the fields of cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, education, and related fields (e.g., speech and language pathology) who are interested in reading, reading instruction, or reading disorders.

Description : This volume brings together studies, research syntheses, and critical commentaries that examine play-literacy relationships from cognitive, ecological, and cultural perspectives. The cognitive view focuses on mental processes that appear to link play and literacy activities; the ecological stance examines opportunities to engage in literacy-related play in specific environments; and the social-cultural position stresses the interface between the literacy and play cultures of home, community, and the school. Examining play from these diverse perspectives provides a multidimensional view that deepens understanding and opens up new avenues for research and educational practice. Each set of chapters is followed by a critical review by a distinguished play scholar. These commentaries' focus is to hold research on play and literacy up to scrutiny in terms of scientific significance, methodology, and utility for practice. A Foreword by Margaret Meek situates these studies in the context of current trends in literacy learning and instruction. Earlier studies on the role of play in early literacy acquisition provided considerable information about the types of reading and writing activities that children engage in during play and how this literacy play is affected by variables such as props, peers, and adults. However, they did not deal extensively, as this book does, with the functional significance of play in the literacy development of individual children. This volume pushes the study of play and literacy into new areas. It is indispensable reading for researchers and graduate students in the fields of early childhood education and early literacy development.

Description : Abstract: The term "emergent literacy" is broadly used to characterize the time during which children are developing those skills and abilities that precede independent reading and writing abilities. Since the term was first used, researchers' and educators' increasing knowledge of emergent literacy has led to the identification of component skills and characteristics in young children, as well as aspects of their home environments that are associated with their later literacy accomplishments National Research Council [NRC], 1998. Aspects of the home environment associated with literacy achievements are commonly referred to as the child's "home literacy practices" Boudreau, 2005. Component skills include: oral language ability, print concepts knowledge environmental print recognition, knowledge of print forms, conventions, and functions, alphabet knowledge letter name and letter sound, name writing and other forms of emergent writing abilities, and phonological awareness. Characteristics include pretend reading and literacy motivation. Home literacy practices associated with later literacy include the parents': use of behaviors that promote literacy learning, personal literacy abilities, and beliefs and attitudes about their child's education. Children's emergent literacy has not been widely studied in the population affected by autism spectrum disorders ASD. In order to better understand emergent literacy development in young children with ASD, this study descriptively explored the component skills and characteristics, as well as the home literacy practices associated with later literacy for children with typical development, in young children with ASD. Forty-one child participants with ASD between the ages of 4 years 0, months and 7 years, 11 months were assessed directly in this study. A clinical diagnosis of ASD was documented via records review; in addition, parents completed the Social Communication Questionnaire SCQ; Rutter, Bailey, & Lord, 2003, a screening tool for autism. Parents of thirty-five of these children took part in a structured interview related to the emergent literacy development and experiences of their children. The child participants' literacy-related behaviors were assessed via direct and indirect assessments. Direct assessments included measures of the children's oral language abilities, nonverbal cognitive abilities and early literacy abilities print concepts, alphabet knowledge, and name writing. Indirect assessment via a structured interview using the Home Emergent Literacy Profile for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders HELPA, Lanter, 2008 further explored these early literacy abilities, as well as the children's emergent writing, phonological awareness, pretend reading, and literacy motivation. The HELPA, a measure specifically designed for this study, was the sole instrument used to explore those aspects of children's home literacy practices previously mentioned as being associated with literacy development in children with typical development. Findings related to the children's component skills and characteristics suggested that oral language skills were moderately correlated with the children's early literacy skills rs between .32-.45, and that an uneven pattern of acquisition of early literacy skills and abilities was observed both within and across early literacy abilities. Relative early literacy strengths in the children included the knowledge of mechanical aspects of print concepts e.g., book orientation and letter name identification. Relatively weak skills included pretend reading and understanding the purpose of reading and writing. Variable performance was observed in the other skills measured in this study. The most striking finding was that early literacyskills related to a conceptual understanding of the communicative purpose of reading and writing e.g., pretend reading, understanding the purpose of reading and writing were found to be weaker than those that do not require this understanding e.g., environmental print recognition, book orientation, letter name identification. Although limitations in early literacy skills existed for many of the children in this study, parents of the overwhelming majority of the child participants reported high levels of literacy motivation. Findings related to the children's home literacy practices suggested that: a home literacy practices alone may not be sufficient to ensure these children's literacy achievements; b the parents' use of home literacy practices may have been influenced by characteristics of the child; and c many of the parents reported feeling that their child exhibited a strength in literacy skills, despite reporting that they felt their child may not have a solid understanding of the purpose of literacy. There are five implications to be drawn from these findings. First, speech-language pathologists and teachers should recognize that, consistent with children who have typical development, oral language skills are associated with early literacy skills among children with ASD, but that some children with significant oral language difficulties may show relative strengths in some early literacy skills. Literacy instruction should thus focus on both aspects of development, oral language skills and traditionally viewed early literacy skills in children with ASD. This recommendation is consistent with best practice recommendations e.g., Center for Early Literacy Learning [CELL], 2007; NRC, 1998. Second, variability both within and across areas of early literacy development is apparent among children with ASD. While variability also is observed inchildren with typical development, for the children in this study, there appeared to be relative difficulty with understanding the social communicative purpose of written communication. This parallels what we know about language development in the population with ASD, that pragmatic language abilities are more adversely affected than structural language abilities Tager-Flusberg, 2004. Further research is needed to consider how the early literacy profile observed in this study speaks to what we know about the disorder. This finding encourages speech-language pathologists and teachers to employ instructional methods that teach of the components of literacy to children with ASD in meaningful literacy activities e.g., writing notes. This pedagogy should be extended to the children's parents, so that they can consider literacy skills in a framework that includes both component skill development and understanding. This is considered best practice for children with typical development NRC, 1998. Third, for children with ASD, the parents' use of behaviors that promote literacy learning may not be sufficient to ensure these children's literacy achievement. Especially for those children with more significant oral language impairments; school-based instruction using evidence-based teaching methods may be needed in addition to experiences provided in the home environment. For children with typical development, research has shown that promoting early literacy abilities through an evidence-based curriculum contributes to later reading abilities for some children Vaughn, Linan-Thompson, & Hickman, 2003. Further research is needed to evaluate the efficacy of emergent literacy programs for children with ASD. Fourth, the literacy teaching behaviors of the children's parents in this study may have been influenced by the child's abilities. This suggests that educational professionals may want to individualize home programs based on the ability of the child and feedback from the family.

Description : This volume identifies and critically analyzes research studies related to the critical skills, environments, and adult interactions that contribute to young children’s literacy development. The volume reminisces on the reformation that has emerged in the language and literacy education of young children. Prior to the 1960's, few studies were available on pre?first?grade literacy. Then studies began to emerge in the 1960's focusing on the reading readiness paradigm and on the conventional assumption that literacy development was only introduce and when children experienced formal reading instruction in school (Sulzby & Teale, 1986). Fortunately, Durkin (1966) found that there were children reading before first grade and determined that the reading readiness paradigm was theoretically and pragmatically incongruous. Others followed Durkin’s footsteps. Sulzby and Teale (1986) identify the following concepts about young children’s acquisition of literacy learning: 1. Literacy development originates well before children are introduced to formal instruction. 2. The notion that reading precedes writing or that writing precedes reading is a fallacy. 3. Literacy blooms in "real?life" settings and by performing real?life activities that are used to "get things done." 4. The purposes of literacy for young children are as important in learning about writing and reading as are the dimensions of literacy. 5. Children’s cognitive development is important to their acquisition of literacy during the years from birth to six. 6. Children learn written language when they actively engage in their world. Competent teachers throughout the United States suggest that prior to attending school, children have acquired a distinctive culture, collection of experiences, and group of abilities (Vacca & Vacca, 2000). Many prekindergarten children have been in a group setting for three and four years such as a child care setting where teachers and caregivers teach them reading and writing.

Description : A comprehensive overview of important contemporary issues in the field of reading research from the mid 1980s to mid 1990s, this well-received volume offers readers an examination of literacy through a variety of lenses--some permitting microscopic views and others panoramic views. A veritable "who's who" of specialists in the field, chapter authors cover current methodology, as well as cumulative research-based knowledge. Because it deals with society and literacy, the first section provides the broadest possible view of literacy. The second section defines the range of activities culturally determined to be a part of the enterprise known as literacy. The third focuses on the processes that individuals engage in when they perform the act of reading. The fourth section visits the environment in which the knowledge that comprises literacy is passed on from one generation to the next. The last section, an epilogue to the whole enterprise of reading research, provides apt philosophical reflection.

Description : This vital addition to Springer’s ‘Educating the Young Child’ series addresses gaps in the literature on father involvement in the lives of young children, a topic with a fast-rising profile in today’s world of female breadwinners and single-parent households. While the significant body of theoretical understanding and empirical data accumulated in recent decades has done much to characterize the fluidity of evolving notions of fatherhood, the impact of this understanding on policy and legal frameworks has been uneven at an international level. In a field where groups of fathers were until recently marginalized in research, this book adopts a refreshingly inclusive attitude, aiming to motivate researchers to capture the nuanced practices of fathers in minority groups such as those who are homeless, gay, imprisoned, raising a disabled child, or from ethnically distinct backgrounds, including Mexican- and African-American and indigenous fathers. The volume includes chapters highlighting the unique challenges and possibilities of father involvement in their children’s early years of development. Contributing authors have integrated theories, research, policies, and programs on father involvement so as to attract readers with diverse interest and expertise, and material from selected countries in Asia, Australia, and Africa, as well as North America, evinces the international scope of their analysis. Their often interdisciplinary analyses draw, too, on historical and cultural legacies, even as they project a vision of the future in which fathers’ involvement in their young children’s lives develops alongside the changing political, economic and educational landscapes around the world.

Description : Income disparity for students in both K-12 and higher education settings has become increasingly apparent since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the wake of these changes, impoverished students face a variety of challenges both internal and external. Educators must deepen their awareness of the obstacles students face beyond the classroom to support learning. Traditional literacy education must evolve to become culturally, linguistically, and socially relevant to bridge the gap between poverty and academic literacy opportunities. Poverty Impacts on Literacy Education develops a conceptual framework and pedagogical support for literacy education practices related to students in poverty. The research provides protocols supporting student success through explored connections between income disparity and literacy instruction. Covering topics such as food insecurity, integrated instruction, and the poverty narrative, this is an essential resource for administration in both K-12 and higher education settings, professors and teachers in literacy, curriculum directors, researchers, instructional facilitators, pre-service teachers, school counselors, teacher preparation programs, and students.
