Presenting enriching and practical activities for using literature in the K-8 classroom.

 

This edition continues to provide current and future classroom teachers with exciting classroom-tested and research-based activities for ensuring children's successful interactions with literature.  The book is packed with activities, all of which are grounded in theory and universal in nature so they can be applied to books of all levels.  The activities have been updated to reflect current research and trends.  The authors support teachers’ efforts to be effective decision-makers as they plan literature instruction for their culturally, linguistically, and academically diverse K-8 students.  This fifth edition also includes a greater emphasis on new literacies and on writing in response to literature.
