One of the most problematic areas in the teaching and development of literacy appears to concern children's interactions with non-fiction books. Many surveys and reports have commented on the tendency for children to do little more than copy out sections of non-fiction texts. The Exeter Extending Literacy (EXEL) project was set up with the aim of exploring ways in which non-fiction might be used more effectively and profitably than this. In this book David Wray and Maureen Lewis outline the thinking behind the project and describe in detail the many useful teaching strategies and approaches which were developed in collaboration with primary teachers across the country. Teachers of children from five to fourteen will find this book both a stimulating account of a very influential development project and a useful source of practical teaching ideas.

This book offers practical advice and guidance on how children can be helped to use language to transform knowledge and experience into understanding across the curriculum, and thus become active learners. In addition to the core subjects, opportunities in music, P.E., I.T. and design technology are examined in the context of the interrelationship between children, language and learning, i.e.: * children learning to use language * children using language to learn * children learning about language Chapters describe classroom practice as well as offering reflective sections on the interrelationships and processes of language and cognitive development. An integral part of this is the acknowledgement of differing learning styles, special educational needs, and issues of linguistic diversity and cultural difference.

If you've experienced the delight and wonderment that children bring to nonfiction read-alouds, take the next step, and invite nonfiction authors into your classroom through author study. Like its fiction counterpart, nonfiction author studies engage students deeply and help them interact with texts in multiple ways, and Nonfiction Author Studies in the Elementary Classroom shows you how to guide and support these interactions while honoring readers' fascination with the world around them. Drawing on the latest research and the experiences of classroom teachers, Carol Brennan Jenkins and Deborah White make the case for studying nonfiction writers and their books with zeal and rigor. They give you a strong rationale for nonfiction author study, outlining how and why it's effective and what its principal goals are. Then they turn over the discussion to five teachers who showcase units they developed and implemented in their own classrooms. Each unit investigates a well-known and well-loved nonfiction author: Gail Gibbons (The Pumpkin Book) Ann Morris (On the Go; Teamwork; Play; and What Was It Like, Grandma?) Jim Arnosky (The All About series) Jean Fritz (Can't You Make Them Behave, King George? and George Washington's Mother) Sandra Markle (Outside and Inside Snakes). Each author study takes you step-by-step through its key questions, themes, and instructional moments, providing everything you'll need along the way, including worksheets, booklists, biographical information, web-based resources, student samples, curriculum maps, and links to literacy standards. Author study isn't just for fiction anymore. Get ready to find out why. Read the wisdom of practicing teachers and explore what nonfiction author study can do for you. Pick up Nonfiction Author Studies in the Elementary Classroom, teach its units, and find a fresh way to deepen your readers connection to the captivating world of nonfiction texts.
