The Effects of Promoting Engaging Early Literacy Interactions in Preschool Environments: Literacy 3D
This project's purpose is to evaluate the efficacy of the fully developed Literacy 3D intervention aimed to increase and sustain prekindergarten teacher's literacy focus by enhancing instruction through professional development combined with ongoing practice-based coaching, data-based feedback, and 10 evidence-based teaching strategies. Preliminary findings showed that, as teachers increase their use of early literacy practices, children subsequently increased literacy engagement, early literacy skills, and expressive language.
