A practitioner-friendly, scientifically based curricular supplement designed to develop and strengthen young children’s early foundations in language and literacy. Lessons are organized around adult-child readings of high-quality storybooks and supplement – not replace – an educator’s instruction. The curricular was developed through a two-year collaborative effort in which CCEC researchers worked closely with early childhood educators, state-level policy-makers, and speech-language pathologists.
It includes two lessons per week, approximately 20-30 minutes which can be implemented using whole-class, small-group, or one-on-one instruction. Findings show that children in classrooms using Read It Again-PreK! outperformed children in comparison classrooms in grammar, vocabulary, print knowledge and rhyming skills.https://earlychildhood.ehe.osu.edu/research/practice/read-it-again-prek/
