Celebrate Literacy! The Joy of Reading and Writing. Teaching Resources in the ERIC Database (TRIED).
Johns, Jerry L.; And Others
Designed to tap the rich collection of instructional techniques in the ERIC database, this compilation of lesson plans offers practical suggestions to help elementary school students discover the fun involved in becoming and being literate. The 40 lesson plans in the book are divided into sections entitled "Classroom Reading Strategies and Skills; "Reading is about Literature"; "Reading and Other Media"; "Reading Fun and Games"; and "Reading Parties." The book includes an activities chart which indicates the focus and types of activities (such as reading skills, oral language skills, silent reading, parent involvement, writing skills, and cloze procedures) found in the various lessons. A 35-item annotated bibliography contains references to research and additional resources. (RS)
