Abstract

Current thinking about early literacy learning was the focus of a research synthesis conducted by Anya Robyak, Tracy Masiello, Carol Trivette, Nicole Roper, and Carl Dunst at the Center for Early Literacy learning. These investigators examined 71 published papers, chapters, and books by current literacy experts, literacy centers, and professional organizations to assemble their recommendations for fostering early literacy learning. The researchers found that all sources of information recommended that young children be provided with a rich mix of print-related and language-enhancing experiences. All sources also identifi ed several print-related and language-related accomplishments that indicate a child has successfully developed early literacy. By providing young children with a mix of print-related and language-related experiences, parents and early childhood professionals will start young children on the path to become successful, competent readers and writers.
