Rebecca Giles, in her beautiful new book, A Young Writer’s World, encourages early education professionals to create environments that inspire young children to become confident writers, which will lead to their becoming confident thinkers. She explains:
“As young children participate in abundant publishing opportunities, whether planned or spontaneous, individual or collaborative, on paper or electronic, the image of themselves as authors becomes firmly embedded…
Young children gain valuable experience in programs that encourage them as authors…The setting, however, can sway an individual for or against any endeavor, which makes it essential to consider how features of the classroom environment affect the writers it is intended to support. Environments that provide the time, materials, and challenges that allow children’s development as authors to flourish must be intentionally planned.”
