  • “Language is an inseparable part of the play and learning of the preschool classroom” (Gestwicki, 2014, p. 383). Imagine that you are asked by a new parent or family member to explain how language and literacy development is fostered in a preschool setting. Based on pages 375–386 of the Gestwicki text, identify three practices a preschool teacher can employ that respond to this question, as well as why each of the three practices are important.

  • “The natural vehicle for extended communication in the preschool classroom is group time” (Gestwicki, 2014, p. 396). Review pages 366–399 of your course text. Explain five components of effective group times and how all of these components, working together, support children’s development and learning.

  • An integral responsibility of preschool teachers is selecting appropriate literature for young children that is reflective, respectful, and supportive of the rich diversity of how people live their lives. Based on your readings, summarize three criteria that you feel are key in selecting books for young children and explain your understanding of the potential impact of literature on children’s perspectives about others.
