This book is about teaching the language arts-about facilitating young children's reading, writing, speaking, and listening development.

The authors provide rich descriptions of two perspectives in children's language and early literacy learning: emergent literacy and scientifically based reading research, and equip early childhood teachers with the know how to use the instructional strategies supported by the research in both perspectives. 2. The authors acknowledge and take into account the increasing diversity of our society and schools by providing numerous illustrations of how teachers can work effectively with diverse learners, providing special features at the end of chapters that explain how to adapt instruction for English Language Learners and children with special needs, and by providing information on the tools teachers can use to discover what each child knows and can do, in order to build on that child's prior knowledge. 3. The authors stress that assessment cannot be separated from good teaching and they describe strategies that teachers can use to understand children's language and literacy knowledge in the context of specific learning and teaching events, while also focusing on today's increasingly important "accountability" function of assessment and standardized testing instruments. 4. The authors acknowledge the importance of the family in young children's language and literacy development and include descriptions of how early childhood teachers can connect with families and engage caregivers in their children's school or center.

This sixth in a series of volumes on Syracuse University's history focuses on the leadership of Chancellor Kenneth "Buzz" Shaw (1991-2004), who undertook the most comprehensive strategic overhaul of the institution since its founding in 1870. With a compelling narrative and fresh analysis, Tobin examines Shaw's thirteen-year tenure, his administrative style, and many of the issues the university faced as it transitioned into the twenty-first century: the diversification of its student body and faculty, women in sports, competitive pressure on its intercollegiate teams, and the relevance of higher education in the modern world. Tobin describes how Shaw led the university through a risky and unconventional renewal, deliberately restraining enrollment growth to strengthen the university and making the Board of Trustees a stronger organization and fund-raising entity. After he stepped down as chancellor, Shaw and his wife, Mary Ann, continued their efforts to improve and shape Central New York in profound and lasting ways, all of which Tobin explores in this fascinating volume.
