Aggressive Children -Segment 9 of 15 (03:17)

Information Literacy Defined (02:17)

Being information literate means knowing how to retrieve information and being able to use that information effectively, legally, and ethically. This skill can help a person conduct school, workplace, or personal research.  View Video.

Communicating with Preschool Children (20:00)

Good communication skills are often forgotten when the person one is talking with is too young to respond equally, which frequently results in frustration on both sides of the conversation. This program presents specific techniques to improve communication skills with preschool children. Parents share what works for them and what does not, while experts in early childhood development offer insights into the understanding levels of young children and make suggestions on helping them find the words they need to better express themselves.  View Video.

Building Literacy Competencies in Early Childhood (32:00)

With the growing reliance on computer-based communication and the return of public interest in early schooling, much attention is being paid to the attainment of literacy. Filmed in several multicultural preschool and kindergarten classrooms, this program reviews underlying cognitive, social, and physical requirements for all formal education and then presents the literacy-specific understandings and skills that have been widely cited but not always adequately described. This video presents an integrated vision of how the precursors of literacy stem from appropriate experiences provided by thoughtful adults to the children in their care. Viewable/printable educational resources are available online.  View Video.

Young Minds: Is Zero-to-Three Destiny? (11:15)

True or false: Mozart's music can have a lasting impact on the growth of a baby's brain. In this program, NewsHour correspondent Betty Ann Bowser explores that question by talking with members from both camps in the heated debate over the developmental significance of the first three years of life. Skeptics include John Bruer, author of The Myth of the First Three Years, and Harvard child psychologist Jerome Kagan, while Yale child psychiatrist Kyle Pruett, holding his ground, argues in defense of the crucial nature of a child's early years. And neurologist Harry Chugani? He demurs, with a qualified "Maybe." (11 minutes).  View Video.

Emerging Communication Skills (22:00)

This program explores the development of language during the first six years of life. While language development begins at birth with the sound of the human voice, caregivers need to provide the building blocks so that children can learn language skills during these first six years.  View Video

Fostering Literacy (02:10)
