Life's Literacy Lessons: Poems for Teachers. Special Edition.
Layne, Steven L.
Discovering the truth of personal experience inside a poem engenders a bond of community. This collection of poems was written to honor literacy educators for all they do. The book presents poems about literacy teaching and learning in a collection of honesty and wit that aims to touch and inspire educators at all grade levels. For those in higher education, the poems in the collection can serve as introductions to many of the topics they cover as they work to train future teachers. It also includes the "stories behind the poems." Following a Preface, the collection is divided into the following sections: About Beginning and Early Reading; About Grammar, Spelling, Handwriting, and Composition; About Junior High and High School Literacy Issues; About Reading Aloud; and About Standards and Teachers.
