Speaking and Listening for Preschool Through Third Grade
Lauren B. Resnick and Catherine E. Snow
Explore the knowledge and skills young children should have as they progress along the continuum of oral language growth. This book and accompanying DVD explain and demonstrate what children can be expected to do in the areas of speaking and listening habits, kinds of talk and resulting genres, and language use and conventions.
Speaking and Listening for Preschool Through Third Grade will encourage you to make your classroom a noisy place, full of rich conversation about ideas, opinions, stories, school subjects, and language itself—a place where spoken words are at the heart of a community of teaching and learning.
Part of the influential New Standards project, Speaking and Listening for Preschool Through Third Grade is informed by the best thinking of a committee of distinguished educators:
