Oral Language as the Foundation: Exploring Connections to Academic Language and the Common Core

Keynote Speaker: Celia Genishi

Classrooms for children in the 21st century have become extra-serious places. Learning to read and write within the context of the Common Core State Standards has become a major goal, starting in the early childhood years.  In this keynote, Celia Genishi will remind the audience of the “big picture” of development. She will illustrate the need for talk, for many opportunities to use oral language at all ages because it is the key ingredient of foundations for literacy and academic language development. A curriculum full of social and academic language, across multiple content areas, can guide the school learning of all students, including bilingual or multilingual learners as well as language strugglers. A rich curriculum can take into account the Common Core, but not be driven by it.

Celia Genishi, Professor Emerita of Education and former Co-Coordinator of the Program in Early Childhood Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, is an authority on early childhood education, language in the classroom, qualitative research and childhood bilingualism. She is the author of Ways of Assessing Children and Curriculum: Stories of Early Childhood Practice (Teachers College Press), The Need for Story: Cultural Diversity in Classroom and Community (National Council of Teachers of English), Children, Language and Literacy: Diverse Learners in Diverse Times (with Anne Haas Dyson; Teachers College Press); and On The Case: Approaches to Language and Literacy Research (with Anne Haas Dyson; Teachers College Press). See Professor Genishi's faculty page.
