Research Appreciation and Methodology

Brief
description
of assessment task Part A: Story Book Reading
Carefully select an interesting children’s book and prepare yourself to engage in the Dialogic Reading approach. Audio-record yourself interacting with a child in relation to the storybook that you are reading aloud. The recording should be for 5-8 minutes in a preschool or child-care setting. Place your transcript in the Appendix.
You should use a dialogic reading approach as described by Vukelic, Christie & Enz (2008), Sharing good books with young children.
Discuss:
• How successful you were in following a ‘dialogic approach’. Give evidence from transcribed examples of your own teacher language to support your discussion.
• How much’ immediate talk’ there is and how much ‘non-immediate talk’. Give evidence from transcribed examples of child language to support your discussion. (Base your answer on the chapter by De Temple (2001), Parents and Children Reading Books Together).
• Reflect upon your above experiences and discuss how you will select books to share with children in Early Childhood settings. Describe the types of approaches and strategies you will use in the future when reading and to encourage reading (refer to relevant readings including our textbook)
NB: Do not submit any recordings, but keep a copy for your own records.
Transcribe all or approx. 5 minutes of the Dialogic reading session and place this in the Appendix of the assignment. See the Guidelines in Cloud n preparing the transcript.

Part B: Writing Development
Collect a sample of 3-5 year old child’s ‘role-play or emergent writing’.
Observe and take notes as the child writes and draws. Make sure the child’s work includes both drawing and the use of letters or letter-like script.
Ask the child to read the writing back to you and record what he or she says.
Discuss and analyse the child’s role play writing and what it demonstrates about their writing development in relation to the following (where relevant):
• The linear principle
• The flexibility principle
• The sign principle
• Word concept
• Names and words learned by sight as wholes
• Phonemic awareness
Base your answer on the readings by Hill (2014) & The Development of Writing and by Schickedanz & Casbergue (2004) & our textbook
Suggest two developmentally appropriate learning activities that might help improve this child’s writing and phonological awareness (refer to relevant readings including our textbook).
NOTE: Please scan/photograph and upload a copy of the child’s writing together with your assignment when you submit it online. It may otherwise be placed in the Appendix.
