More Than 50 Ways to Learner-Centered Literacy.
Lipton, Laura; Hubble, Deborah
Designed for teachers of kindergarten through grade 6, this book contains practical and innovative ideas on fostering literacy generated from discussions with teachers from the United States and Canada, visits to their classrooms, and observations of their interactions with students. The book addresses all levels of learner-centered literacy instruction. It offers creative ways to design a literate environment, orchestrate student interaction, develop fluency, nurture lifelong learners, and assess student growth. All of the activities and strategies in the book are organized by difficulty level--simple things to do, things that take effort, and things for the committed--and include research-based background information, helpful hints and facts, and easy-to-follow instructions. While most of the ideas in the book readily lend themselves to a language arts curriculum, they can all be easily adapted for use across the curriculum. Contains a 28-item resource list. (CR)
