Literature Frameworks: From Apples to Zoos. Second Edition. Professional Growth Series.
McElmeel, Sharron L.
Intended for use by teachers in preschool through intermediate grade classrooms, library media specialists, and other educators, this book presents 26 literature frameworks that involve students in reading and sharing literature in connection with thematic units. Each framework suggests books and literature-related materials to coincide with topics that are often included in the elementary school curriculum. The book seeks to identify a multitude of common topics/themes and provide a skeleton for the unit by presenting some basic background information and a bibliography, including annotations and suggestions for integrating the resources into that particular theme or connection. This revised and expanded edition includes many new resources, especially World Wide Web sites and newly released books. The alphabetical list of topics includes apples, books, collage, flight, ice cream, money, quilts, scarecrows, uniforms, x-rays, and zoos. An appendix presents 26 reproducible graphic organizers to assist in the learning activities suggested in the book. (RS)
