Modeling the Process: Creating a Community of Learners in Reading/Language Arts Methods Courses.
Danielson, Kathy Everts; LaBonty, Jan
Modeling the processes of effective teaching through cooperative learning, creating a community of learners, and other interactive teaching strategies are discussed. As teacher education students become involved in their own reading and writing, they take ownership of their own learning and begin to feel a part of a larger community of learners. Elements such as storytelling, dialogue journals, daily reading aloud, pen pal letters, and shared writing are described within this community of learners approach. Seventeen references are included as well as a list of books recommended for reading aloud. (Author/JD)
