Letting Go of "Letter of the Week."
Bell, Donna; Jarvis, Donna
Primary Voices K-6, v11 n2 p10-24 Oct 2002
Describes authors' experience of a "literacy dig" during their second Reading Initiative meeting, in which they searched for literacy in uncommon places. Explains how this exercise caused them to shift from deficit learning to acknowledging that children know how to read and write and need support and guidance. Outlines the authors' experience teaching kindergarten children to read and write in this way. (PM)
