What is Literacy? (the plot thickens)

Congratulations! You have explored a mountain of research about children’s early literacy learning. It’s an expansive view here on the mountain. Shall we stay at the top of this summit, believing we have enough information to make good pedagogical choices about how to support our children’s emerging language and literacy skills?

Let’s think back to the Antoinette Portis story Not A Box! That story inspired us to see the same thing in many different ways. So far we have followed the book’s plot by imagining our focus on literacy to be a box we could drive. We got into our Not a Box car and drove up Literacy Mountain. Let’s continue using the story as our guide. Take a deep breath. We are about to see our literacy box from the perspective of a firefighter!
