A Reason to Read: Linking Literacy and the Arts
Landay, Eileen; Wootton, Kurt
Harvard Education Press
"A Reason to Read" is the culminating work of the ArtsLiteracy Project, an ambitious and wide-ranging collaborative that aims to promote literacy through rich and sustained instruction in the arts. At the heart of the book is the "Performance Cycle," a flexible framework for curriculum and lesson planning that can be adapted to all content areas and age groups. Each of the book's main chapters delineates and explores a particular component of the cycle. A practical, readable, and inspiring book, "A Reason to Read" will be of immeasurable help to school teachers, education leaders, and all who have a stake in promoting literacy and the arts in today's schools.
