Fact and Fiction: Literature across the Curriculum.
Cullinan, Bernice E., Ed.
Designed to inspire teachers to explore trade books in new ways, this book presents chapters dealing with historical fiction, diversity education, informational books in the social studies, literature in the math class, and supplementary reading materials for the science instruction. Although each chapter in the book focuses on a specific content area, all show how the areas complement and support one another and how literature helps in the process. Chapters in the book are: (1) "Making the Past Come to Life" (Linda S. Levstik); (2) "Diversity Education" (Adela Artola Allen); (3) "Factual History: Nonfiction in the Social Studies Program" (Betty Carter and Richard F. Abrahamson); and (5) "Literature in the Science Program" (Dianne Lapp and James Flood). An author index, a children's book author index, and a children's book title index are attached. (RS)
