Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Nurturing children's emerging literacy is currently a well-publicized goal for schools. Much concern is expressed by educators and the public for students who finish their education without acquiring language abilities that will support them in their adult life. Educators are recognizing that literacy emerges at an early age, long before children come to school. Educators are building school reading and writing programs on the oral and written language experiences children bring to school. As in their preschool years, children in school instruction should have opportunities to use language in ways that are purposeful, meaningful, and natural within the structure of whole units rather than in isolated fragments.
