Reviews - What do customers think about Story Dictation: A Guide for Early Childhood Professionals?
Great Book! Jun 1, 2008
As a relatively new pre-kindergarten teacher, I found this book to be extremely helpful. I felt reassured about what I was doing right and questions I had if I was "doing it the right way" were answered. The author gave me a lot of ideas to use next school year. It is really hard to find books dedicated only to story dictation. I was waiting for months for this book to be published! It was worth the wait.
A welcome and highly recommended contribution to the expanding library of instructional reference material Dec 1, 2007
In "Story Dictation: A Guide For Early Childhood Professionals", academician Ann Gadzikowsi draws upon her more than twenty years of experience and expertise as a classroom teacher and as a director of early childhood programs to provide teachers and caregivers with the fundamental tools and techniques to help children tell stories by recording their words on paper exactly as they are spoken. "Story Dictation" addresses the 'what, why & how' questions about the concept of recording children's stories, and goes on to address such topics as implementation techniques, interpreting story themes, and using diction for assessment purposes. The assertion is that telling stories will prove to be a significant aid with respect to interesting children in becoming literate and in expresses themselves with confidence. Thoroughly 'user friendly', "Story Dictation" is a welcome and highly recommended contribution to the expanding library of instructional reference material for classroom instructors, home schooling parents, and caregivers and support staff involved with children from daycare centers, community library literacy efforts, and community center programs for young children.
