Teachers and Curriculum

Abstract

This article explores some of the challenges that young children face when they begin formalised literacy learning in the classroom, in particular to write.

The challenges are discussed in terms of the transitions children are faced with when moving from family and community literacy practices to more explicit and formal school learning situations. How teachers can help children transition and learn the complex task of learning to write as emergent and early literates are disucssed relative to the writing process.
