Extending Interactions with Non-fiction Texts: An Exit into Understanding.
Wray, David; Lewis, Maureen
Exploring ways of helping teachers to extend their pupils' literacy, this paper's intent is to devise and try in classrooms a range of strategies whereby teachers might develop the abilities of their children to use literacy more effectively as a means of learning. It gives an outline of the model used, the Extending Interaction with Texts, or "EXIT" model, and briefly outlines the thinking and research underlying the model. The paper concludes that despite the difficulties in devising models of this nature, teachers have reacted positively to the attempt to provide a framework for their classroom work. Contains 30 references. (SC)
