When preschool children receive high-quality literacy instruction, it benefits their emotional and cognitive development enormously. In this research-based, yet practical resource, Lea McGee shares five guidelines that can help transform preschool programs: 1) develop a vision of standards and monthly goals 2) use a mixture of embedded and direct instruction, 3) create a shared definition of systematic, direct instruction, 4) help all teachers become masters at delivering instruction, and 5) seek agreement on a plan for how to begin making changes. She also provides strategies and lessons to help teachers meet these guidelines.
