In this booklet, the reader is introduced to certain
foundational ideas related to the teaching and learning
of language and early literacy. The first brief argues
that children learn to listening, speaking, reading and
writing (LSRW) simultaneously, thereby challenging
the prevalent idea that they are acquired sequentially.
Such a shift has powerful consequences for classroom
practice. The second brief underlines the importance of
creating a print-rich environment for young language
learners and provides some practical ideas for doing
so. In the third brief, the “comprehensive” model of
early language and literacy instruction is introduced.
There are many aspects to consider while teaching
early language and literacy, and good language
teachers need to be able to attend to all these aspects
simultaneously in their classrooms! Ideas are presented
for making the comprehensive literacy model come
alive in Indian settings. The final brief describes what
is meant by “emergent literacy” and how to address it
in early language learning environments
