This four-part professional development series explores the environment and instruction that support the literacy development of preschool children and how they differ from those used in the primary classroom.

Program Descriptions

  1. Planning for Literacy Instruction—looks at the big picture: the kinds of things that children should be doing to support their literacy development. The program addresses early literacy outcomes and standards and how to create a plan to help children meet those goals.
  2. Designing a Literacy-Rich Classroom—begins to put the plan into action. Topics include the elements of the physical environment of the classroom and a typical schedule that fosters literacy.
  3. Strategies in Action —focuses on activities related to the literacy outcomes discussed in the first two programs. Classroom examples show a variety of activities, including one that everyone does—circle time—as well as how multiple outcomes can be addressed in a single activity.
