'This is a timely book that effectively challenges the current emphasis on a homogeneous approach to teaching, learning, and assessment in early literacy. It encourages us to engage with the real world complexity of young children’s learning and offers a series of rich and detailed examples of this in practice.'
This is an ideal book for both trainees and current teachers, and for those studying for PGCE, B.Eds, Masters or advanced teaching assistant training courses, because it demonstrates how to scaffold children's literacy using a creative approach.
We have decided to adopt another book that focuses on multimodal visual literacies
This book is a real gem! It introduces the reader to the basic concepts of multimodality and multiliteracy. It is very important to have titles like this for early years education! Thanks so much authors for doing such a brilliant work and sharing your knowledge with us!
The book provides useful information on linking theory to practice, a key aspect for undergraduate students.
Helpful extension to course content. Great for signposting further issues to consider.
This book will be good to support students needing extra reading around children's mark making and emergent writing. I particularly like the pictorial examples throughout the book - bringing some reality to the theory
very good book for the Primary Education module.
Very useful addition to my reading list.
An excellent read to understand young children's literacy using a creative and guided group teaching approach. It offers some rich examples from practice for teachers.
This book is helpful in exploring and challenging the orthodoxy of current approaches to learning and teaching early literacy and the implications for young children and educators.
