Teacher Talk – Module II: Let Language Lead the Way to Literacy  October 14, 2017
Let Language Lead the Way to Literacy presents the important links between oral language and literacy and outlines how to support emerging literacy skills in early childhood settings. This training builds upon the interactive strategies that were introduced in Encouraging Language Development in Early Childhood  Settings and applies them to book reading.

Participants learn how to:

  1. Develop positive attitudes towards the use of print.
  2. Make book reading a time for interaction and conversation.
  3. Adjust their language during book reading to match the children’s stage of language development.
  4. Encourage higher level abstract thinking during book reading.
  5. Increase print awareness by making print “talk” in the classroom and drawing children’s attention to

By the end of the training, participants will be able to use a checklist to evaluate how effectively they currently foster literacy in the classroom, and develop an Action Plan for implementing strategies presented in the training.
