Whole Language across the Curriculum: Grades 1, 2, 3. Language and Literacy Series.
Raines, Shirley C., Ed.
Applying the whole language perspective across the primary-grade curriculum, this book presents 10 essays that describe first-, second-, and third-grade classrooms where teachers find authentic, meaningful ways for children to communicate about their lives and what they are learning. Essays in the book demonstrate numerous whole language activities and illustrate the process of change undergone by teachers as they adopt and implement the whole language view of practice. After a foreword by Dorothy S. Strickland, essays in the book are: (1) "Reflecting on Whole Language" (Shirley C. Raines); (2) "A First Grade Teacher Becomes a Whole Language Teacher" (Shirley C. Raines); (3) "Second and Third Grade Teachers Implement Whole Language in Their Classrooms" (Shirley C. Raines); (4)"Inside a Primary House: Whole Language in Alternatively Structured Classrooms" (Shirley C. Raines); (5) "Dance! Chant! Discuss! Write! Responses to Literature in the Primary Grades" (Linda Leonard Lamme); (6) "Whole Language in Play and the Expressive Arts" (Joan P. Isenberg); (7) "A Complete Whole: Social Studies and the Language Arts" (Carol Seefeldt); (8) "Whole Language and Primary Grades Mathematics and Science: Keeping in Step with National Standards" (Rosalind Charlesworth and Karen K. Lind); (9) "Whole Language Portfolios: Assessment and Evaluation to Inform Children, Parents, and Educators" (Gary and Maryann Manning); and (10) "Challenges for Whole Language Primary Teachers" (Shirley C.
