I really like the way you stated your post. your definition of emergent literacy is spot on, to me. I like how you compared it to riding an elevator. We never sit there and tell kids that we need to flip pages from left to right. We do introduce title pages and stuff like that but that's more specific. They learn how to move through books because (hopefully) they have seen it many times. I too watched the videos before the lecture and wondered how scribbling was considered emergent writing. After the lecture and going back to what I learned in other courses, it is that the students are recognizing that print carries meaning.

      I love the point you make about teaching children with Autism explicit instructions on how to do things, such as flipping through a book from left to right. I had never thought about the differences... more
