Overview

EARLY CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES IN LANGUAGE ARTS: EARLY LITERACY, 11th Edition, responds to legislation, professional standards, and concern around young children's language and literacy skills with research-based instructional strategies. This product emphasizes the relationship between listening, speaking, reading, writing (print), and viewing as well as cultural and ethnic diversity. Supplementing theory with how-to's, rich pedagogical materials, and a variety of activities, it provides helpful guidance on interacting with children to promote appropriate language development and create a print-rich classroom environment.

Her teaching responsibilities encompassed early childhood education, child development, and parenting courses. She received her Master's Degree from San Jose State University and her community college life credential with coursework from the University of California at Berkeley.
