Literacy Academy video highlights early language development


Ohio’s Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement spans birth through grade 12. In a conversation from Literacy Academy 2022, early care and education professionals can learn about supporting Ohio’s youngest learners, particularly as it relates to language development.

Dr. Lucy Hart Paulson and Dr. Susan Neuman share the importance of oral language and the intentionality behind the language-rich opportunities educators provide in early care and education classrooms. This video provides actionable ideas surrounding vocabulary, conversational turns, shared book reading and more. A viewing guide is available to support learning.
