Authentic Text: Linking Home, School, and Community with Environmental Texts.
Honeyghan, Glasceta
Florida Reading Quarterly, v37 n2 p14-16 Dec 2000
Authentic or popular texts--such as newspapers, grocery lists, magazines, and pamphlets--can be used effectively in reading instruction. This article first discusses the importance and usefulness of environmental print, or authentic texts, in the context of formal schooling. It then presents a list of authentic texts (several kinds of texts for each letter of the alphabet). The article concludes with a 21-item list of ways to use authentic texts to create print rich classrooms that immerse students in meaningful understanding of print. (Contains 11 references.) (RS)
