Literature at Home: Elementary - Junior High. Books and Beyond.
Topolovac, Eleanore R.; And Others
Developed for teachers of elementary and junior high school students, the "Literature at Home" program is designed to stimulate recreational reading and to enrich the regular classroom reading curriculum. Lesson plans include synopses, vocabulary lists, short-answer questions, activities (including many writing activities), and projects for 36 books chosen for their high literary quality and interest to students. It is suggested that one book may be read by the entire class or that individual titles may be selected by student groups according to reading abilities. The program is divided into two sections. The first section, for elementary grades, contains lessons for 12 books with reading levels for grades three to nine. The second section, for junior high school grades, has lessons for 24 books with reading levels for grades four to nine. (EM)
