Ah - Bu - Kuh - Du. How well do we actually know our ABCs, and how effective are we at teaching this critical first step in reading to our littles?
Today’s guest, Dr. Shayne Piasta, is an Associate Professor of Reading and Literature in Early and Middle Childhood in the Department of Teaching and Learning at the Ohio State University. She also is a faculty fellow at the Crane Center for Early Childhood Research and Policy. Her research focuses on early literacy development and how it is best supported during preschool and elementary years.
Dr. Piasta is an acclaimed scholar, and the reason I got into child development and early education. I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to ask Shayne about alphabet knowledge and better understand how we can be more effective when teaching littles about letters.Support the show (https://www.southsidelearning.org/donate)
