Detail Product
u003cpu003eBuilding on her award-winning research (featured inu003cemu003ePlaying Their Way into Literaciesu003c/emu003e) which emphasizes that play is an early literacy, Wohlwend has developed a curricular framework for children ages 3 to 8. The Literacy Playshop curriculum engages children in creating their own multimedia productions, positioning them as media makers rather than passive recipients of media messages. The goal is to teach young children to critically interpret the daily messages they receive in popular entertainment that increasingly blur toys, stories, and advertising.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eThe first half of this practical resource features case studies that show how six early childhood teachers working together in teacher study groups developed and implemented play-based literacy learning and media production. The second half of the book provides a Literacy Playshop framework with professional development and classroom activities, discussion questions, and u0026ldquo;technology try-itu0026rdquo; sections. This user-friendly book will inspire and support teachers in designing their own Literacy Playshops.u003c/pu003eu003cpu003eu003cstrongu003eKaren E.

Having argued that u0026lsquo;children play their way into literacyu0026rsquo; and that u0026lsquo;play is the earliest form of inquiry,u0026rsquo; I compliment the authors of this volume on not only proving these points, but demonstrating how technology, popular culture, and critical literacy might be woven seamlessly into the early childhood curriculum.u0026rdquo;u003cbr /u003eu0026#8212;u003cstrongu003eJerome Harsteu003c/strongu003e, University of Indianau003c/pu003e Additional ISBNs: 9780807754283, 0807754285,9780807771969, 0807771961
