Language Development in Preschoolers and Kindergarteners. Read Chapter 6, 7 and 8 of the class text, as well as the articles from ProQuest.
Language knowledge develops during the preschool years to prepare students for success in kindergarten and beyond. Preschool education and the government funding that supports it has been a consistent topic of debate since its conception. Given what you have learned about the importance of developmentally appropriate methodologies in respect to learning and to the continued support of preschool and early education programs, what do you think of giving iPads to kindergartens or having prom in preschool? Support your argument with evidence to prove the developmental appropriateness or inappropriateness of either. If you had a child in either program, what would you do? Why? In addition address how the program could impact support and /or funding for early education programs.
