Description

Cooper offers preschool and kindergarten teachers a natural way to help young children begin to read and write: placing stories at the very center of the early childhood curriculum. When Stories Come to School includes an in-depth discussion of the pedagogical and developmental roles that stories can play in early childhood education as well as ideas about how children can tell their own stories and perform them with their classmates. Cooper, director of the Teachers’ Network for Early Literacy in the Center for Education at Rice University, also discusses the uses and misuses of whole language and the writing process. Insightful and candid, this book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in reading, writing, and young children.
