Packet Preparation. Summer Program Academic Resources Coordination Center.
State Univ. of New York, Cortland. Coll. at Cortland.
This teaching guide was developed by the Summer Program Academic Resources Coordination Center (SPARCC) in Loudonville, New York. SPARCC was a migrant education grant that developed and helped implement model summer migrant education programs in New York, Virginia, and Florida. This guide provides directions for preparing learning packets to accompany children's books. The packets provide educators and parents with ideas and materials to extend student learning. Steps for preparing packets include the following: (1) choose appropriate children's literature, i.e., books that are multicultural, multi-racial, or unbiased; (2) read the child's book and find a basic theme such as careers, death, and being a friend; (3) write two or three objectives related to the theme of the book; (4) implement applied learning activities to fully involve students in literature, including 15 suggested activities, such as question-guided discussion, journal writing, story frame, plot charts, and story map; and (5) choose at least two articles from parenting books or magazines to include in the packet that related to objectives. Also included are suggestions for putting the packets together; examples of literature webs that illustrate the way literature can be integrated into other content areas; an example packet format; and four additional learning activities aimed at improving student reading comprehension.
