Promoting the Gift of Literacy: 101 Lesson Plans for Oral and Written Language.
Ashmore, Rhea A.
This book provides functional, pragmatic activities for educators, future teachers, and parents to promote the gift of literacy to others. The book offers 101 detailed lesson plans for the four literacy domains of oral and written language, word recognition, comprehension and strategic reading for narrative text, and study skills and strategic reading for content area text. Its 101st lesson is blank for further planning. Lesson plans in the book are designed for readers in three developmental steps: initial reading, transitional, and basic literacy. Per lesson plan, relevant activity forms are included, full references are cited, and other recommended books are noted. The book emphasizes literacy as a continuous process not dependent on age or grade level. Appendixes contain a literacy lesson plan template; a list of national awards for children's literature; an 85-item list of literature cited in the lesson plans; a 36-item list of professional resources; and an 11-item list of Internet sites related to literacy.
