The Personal Literacy Jackdaw: "Something To Crow About."
Johnston, Christine; Stanley, Christine, Ed.
Designed to engage the learner in active learning while allowing for different degrees of guidance, this workbook represents an innovative approach to the instruction of Early American literature. The Personal Literacy Jackdaw workbook provides reading, writing, and speaking activities to help the tenth/eleventh grade language arts student develop an appreciation of Early American literature as a personal literature by involving the student in studying the personal writings of a family member or close friend, thus developing in the student a sense of the bridge of common emotions and experiences which tie the lives of the seventeenth century to those of the twentieth century. The workbook contains a framework and description of the project, a lesson plan, and a sample of a personal literary jackdaw. (NKA)
