Getting to the Rough Ground of Language and Literacy Learning Through the Language Experience Approach

This blog post from The Literacy Bug describes how teachers can use the language experience approach (LEA) to support early language learners by providing them with ample opportunities to hear, see, use and manipulate language in contextualized, purposeful ways. It details how the teacher use the LEA to draw learners’ attention to phonetic and semantic patterns in the co-constructed text. The blog post contains several short videos demonstrating the use of this approach, as well as discussion questions for teachers.
