A Two-Way Street: Reading to Write/Writing to Read: Using Literature to Generate Writing in the Elementary Classroom Grades K-6.
Hains, Maryellen, Ed.
Developed in the belief that the regular inclusion of literature in the elementary school curriculum can lead to a dynamic interaction and integration in the language arts, this booklet provides an annotated bibliography of children's literature with teaching suggestions. The activities are arranged so that they can be modified from one book to another. Reflecting the writing process, the teaching suggestions are grouped according to prewriting, writing, editing, revision, and extension activities. Including some "classic" literature titles such as "Charlotte's Web,""The Borrowers," and the Little House series, as well as lesser known titles such as "Bronzeville Boys and Girls" and "Tom's Midnight Garden," the annotations are grouped according to realistic fiction, fantasy, poetry, folk, or various.
