Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0872072576, Paperback)

This excellent resource will show teachers of grades 3 through 6 how to help children connect reading and writing while exploring new worlds of literature. Believing that reading and writing work together to encourage the construction of meaning, the authors urge teachers to expose students to a variety of literature and use writing to respond to it. They reject the traditional grouping of literature into broad categories of fiction and nonfiction, and instead present a classroom-tested interactive model that calls for teaching a variety of literary genres, including realistic fiction, mysteries, folk tales, pourquoi stories and fables, fantasy, and biographies. The book’s background information will familiarize you with each genre, and you’ll find a variety of teaching strategies and activities to help students write their own genre stories and even expand into other areas.
