Early Literacy Project: Explorations and Reflections, Part 2, Contemporary Education Dialogue, Vol 5.2, 2008

The Early Literacy Project is an intervention to support Hindi learners. In the first part of this paper, the theoretical concerns were discussed. In this second part, the experiences of working within classrooms of a few government schools is presented. These included linguistically controlled interventions for beginners, which aimed to build strong foundations in phonological awareness, orthographic knowledge and skills of meaning constructions in keeping with natural pre-dispositions and the out-of-school languages and experiences of learners.
