From Literature to Literacy: Bridging Learning in the Library and the Primary Grade Classroom.
Moss, Joy F.; Fenster, Marilyn F.
This book is the product of a collaborative partnership between the two authors to develop a year-long literary/literacy program for first grade children based on bridging learning in the library and the classroom. Some of the objectives of the program described in the book are: to provide opportunities for children to experience personal enjoyment and growth through literature; to provide experiences in which children are challenged to engage in critical thinking; to expose children to diverse literary genres; and to provide opportunities for children to engage in independent reading. In order to realize these objectives, cumulative literary experiences were developed in the context of a series of thematic literary units, which served as the core of the program. After an introduction, chapters in the book are: (1) From Theory to Practice: Integrating Literary and Literacy Learning; (2) The Dog Tale Unit: A Shared Beginning; (3) The Dog Tale Unit: Exploring New Literary Paths; (4) The Dog Tale Unit: Introducing Nonfiction, Fiction, and Book Classification; (5) The Transformation Tale Unit: Introducing a Literary Motif; (6) The Transformation Tale Unit: Encountering Dynamic Characters; (7) From Reader Response to Collaborative Writing; and (8) Reflections from the Library and the Classroom.
