Using Literature in the Elementary Classroom. Revised and Enlarged Edition.
Stewig, John Warren, Ed.; Sebesta, Sam Leaton, Ed.
This collection of seven essays focuses on the wealth of language learning possibilities that open up when teachers surround children with attractive and well-written books and know how to use them in imaginative ways. It reflects the current movement in elementary education toward child-centered teaching and integrating the language arts. Essays consist of: (1) "Reading to Learn about the Nature of Language" (A. Barbara Pilon); (2) "Using Picture Books for Reading Vocabulary Development" (Alden J. Moe); (3) "The Tradebook as an Instructional Tool: Strategies in Approaching Literature" (Helen Felsenthal); (4) "Book Illustration: Key to Visual and Oral Literacy" (John Warren Stewig); (5) "Reading Leads to Writing" (Richard G. Kolczynski); (6) "Creative Drama and Story Comprehension" (Mary Jett-Simpson); and (7) "Literature across the Curriculum" (Sam Leaton Sebesta). (MM)
