Bookwebbing across the Curriculum.
Donaldson, Jan
Reading Teacher, v37 n4 p435-37 Jan 1984
This article describes a 10-step process for bookwebbing, a method of using a storybook for instruction in a variety of curriculum areas. The process, which is recommended to be used in cooperation with another teacher, is as follows: (1) choose a book which can apply to many curriculum areas; (2) read the whole book; (3) read it again in two or three weeks and record ideas related to each curriculum area; (4) compare the ideas with those of another teacher; (5) develop a thematic web; (6) develop specific lesson plans from the web; (7) begin reading the book aloud to the class, a chapter or two each day, while implementing ideas in related subject areas; (8) take notes on the effectiveness of different ideas and compare the results with those of another teacher; (9) give students many follow-up activities; and (10) carefully think through the next book to be selected. A sample thematic web used with "Lafcadio, The Lion Who Shot Back," by Shel Silverstein, is included. (DC)
