Description

As schools adapt to meet today's changing definition of literacy, parents often are left with lingering questions: What's going on in my child's classroom, and why? What do terms like "authentic assessment," "emergent literacy," and "process writing" mean? To help address these concerns, this book uses clear, everyday language and classroom examples to explain and illustrate some of the key concepts and terms in literacy acquisition and education. A variety of fun and practical activities is suggested for parents to do at home with their children.
