This practical, reader-friendly textbook for preservice and in-service early childhood education and early literacy courses provides "how-to-do-it" instructions for promoting emergent literacy in reading, writing, and arithmetic from preschool into the primary grades. Early 3 Rsanswers the question: "What can I SAY and DO to give each child the best possible start on the 3 Rs?" With the strategies and materials in this book, a teacher can give personalized direct instruction in the 3 Rs to a beginner, in just a few minutes a day. The early chapters tell how to prepare a young child for reading, writing, and arithmetic. Subsequent chapters show how to give a beginner an early start on learning the 3 Rs. All strategies begin with the oral approach (from phonemic awareness to "arithme-talk") and then progress to print that is personally meaningful to a young child. Early 3 Rs: * Includes arithmeticas a component of early literacy. * Gives developmentally appropriate methods for directteaching of the 3 Rs. * Provides scriptsof what the teacher can say to promote early learning. * Helps education students in field-based classesoffer personalized instruction. Early 3 Rsis written to be very reader friendly: the approach is intentionally eclectic; the writing deliberately avoids heavy theory; the goal is to provide an easy-to-use, highly practical and accessible guide for those who work in early childhood education settings.… (more)

Arguably one of the most influential American photographer of the twentieth century, this book chronicles the life of Edward Steichen through his photographs. His career spans the latter part of the nineteenth century and extended into the last quarter of the twentieth century. He was responsible for having photography accepted as an art form in the United States and befriended many other artists in other mediums along the way. ( )

Edward Steichen has written a surprisingly readable and interesting autobiography, well-laden with good reproductions of much of his photographic ouvre. I had some familiarity with his more famous photographs, and one of my favorite books of photography is his "Family of Man" collection. But I was surprised to learn what a warmly unassuming and likeable personality he was. We also shared some of the same respect and admiration for other well-known artists and creators. For example, his sister married Carl Sandburg, and the two rapidly became best friends. Steichen was immensely influenced by Alfred Stieglitz and Auguste Rodin early in his career, and much of his fame came from his astonishing photographic portraits of contemporary celebrities. This book also helped change my assumptions about the role of the photographer in controlling the final appearance of the photograph, making intelligent and well-considered choices in lighting, lenses, exposure time and types of developing media. I was also impressed with his humanitarian ideals, particularly well-expressed in his writing about his wartime photography and his work on the "Family of Man". A fine, sumptuous autobiography and body of photography by a man I have developed a further respect for. ( )
