Caldecott Connections to Language Arts.
Teachers can take advantage of the appeal and power of Caldecott Award literature to extend and promote learning across the curriculum. This book demonstrates how to use award-winning books as springboards to language arts learning in the library and classroom, and the expansion of student awareness and appreciation of illustration techniques. For each of the 12 Caldecott titles, the book provides background information on the illustrations, curriculum connections, lesson plans, and support materials for teaching. It also integrates Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences with curriculum content. With a flexible, discovery approach, the book's activity units focus on student-centered, experiential, holistic, and authentic learning, and they are ready for instant implementation. Targeted to primary grade objectives and abilities, the book includes an array of both individual and collaborative projects. The book also fosters collaborations between library media specialists and classroom teachers. It includes a section on the Caldecott Award and its founder, Randolph Caldecott. Contains a glossary.
