Reclaiming Early Childhood Literacies : Narratives of Hope, Power, and Vision, Paperback / softback Book

Reclaiming Early Childhood Literacies : Narratives of Hope, Power, and Vision Paperback / softback

Edited by Richard J. Meyer, Kathryn F. Whitmore


At a time when literacy has become more of a political issue than a research or pedagogical one, this volume refocuses attention on work with young children that places them at the center of their literacy worlds.

Drawing on robust and growing knowledge which is often marginalized because of political and legislative forces, it explores young children's literacies as inclusive, redefined, and broadened-encompassing technologies, the arts, multiple modalities, and teaching and learning for democracy, cultural sustainability and social justice.

Highlighted themes include children's rights to grow through playful engagements with multiple literacies to interrogate their worlds; adults who expand and inspire children's consciousness and awareness of others and the world around them; the centrality of meaning making in all aspects of language and literacy development; a deep respect for diversities, including languages, cultures, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and more; and an expansive understanding of the nature of texts.
