Synopsis

As the world comes to grips with what it means to be literate in the twenty-first century, Understanding and Supporting Young Writers from Birth to 8 provides practitioners with the skills and knowledge they need to support young children effectively as they learn to write. Interweaving theory and research with everyday practice, the book offers guidance on all aspects of writing, from creating multimodal texts and building children's vocabulary, to providing support for children who find writing particularly challenging.





With appropriate strategies to develop young children's writing from an early age included throughout, the book discusses the role of oral language in early writing in detail and explores the key relationships between `drawing and talking', `drawing and writing' and `drawing, talking and writing'. Each chapter also features samples of writing and drawing to illustrate key points, as well as reflective questions to help the reader apply ideas in their own settings. Further topics covered include:

















progressions in children's writing















writing in the pre-school years















developing authorial skills















developing editorial skills















teaching writing to EAL learners.

















Understanding and Supporting Young Writers from Birth to 8 is a unique resource that will help early childhood educators, early years school teachers, specialist practitioners working with very young children, and students enrolled in Early Childhood or Primary Studies courses to boost their confidence in teaching young learners as they become writers.
