Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0205275311, Paperback)

This book describes a unique approach that enables readers to effectively connect reading and writing processes in a workshop format. Students in the classroom community work together to identify characteristics of traditional literature by using critical thinking and reading activities. They then write their own stories that reflect some of these characteristics. The sampling of activities in this helpful guide show how reading and writing serve as interdependent tools for developing literacy in each student. Most importantly, these activities can easily be adopted to include literature from a variety of genres. This book provides teachers with elements, ideas, and activities that enables them to more effectively connect reading and writing processes utilizing a workshop format. Chapter One covers aspects of the reading-writing connection; Chapter Two introduces the different genres of study. Chapters Three, Four, and Five include lesson plans which instruct students in the characteristics of the genres and how to write through corresponding activities, such as "Becoming a Fabulist." For anyone interested in connecting reading and writing to literature.
