Language Knowledge Article

Chapter 1 explains the attributes of language and the process of language acquisition in young children. Since this is such a crucial component to support language acquisition, it is important that we understand this fully. As teachers, we also serve as information resources for parents. Choose one of the following topics and write a short 250- to 350-word article for a parent newsletter:

  • Language Attributes
  • Process of Language Acquisition
  • Language and Communication

Your article should focus on helping parents understand the process of language acquisition in an informative, yet parent-friendly manner. Be sure to support your ideas with a reference to the textbook and at least one outside source cited in APA format. Construct your initial post for this discussion as if parents were your audience.
