Clearly organized and beautifully written, Interpreting Literature With Children is a remarkable book that stands on the edge of two textbook genres: the survey of literature text and the literary criticism text. Neither approach, however, says enough about how children respond to literature in everyday classroom situations. That is the mission of this book. It begins by providing a solid foundation in both approaches and then examines multiple ways of developing children's literary interpretation through talk, through culture, class, and gender, as well as through creative modes of expression, including writing, the visual arts, and drama. The result is a balanced resource for teachers who want to deepen their understanding of literature and literary engagement. Because of its modest length and price and its ongoing focus on how to increase student engagement with literature, either pre-service or practicing teachers can use this text in children's literature, language arts, or literacy and language courses.

Fluency?s relationship to phonological awareness, phonics, and print concepts is explained, and practical methods are shared for integrating fluency instruction in a literacy curriculum grounded in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Classroom examples, weekly lesson plans, and extensive lists of recommended texts add to the book?s utility for teachers.

When Caren Holtzman and Lynn Susholtz look around a classroom, they see "a veritable goldmine of mathematical investigations" involving number, measurement, size, shape, symmetry, ratio, and proportion. They also think of the ways great artists have employed these concepts in their depictions of objects and space--for example, Picasso's use of geometric shapes in his Cubist still lifes or contemporary artist Tara Donovan's room-sized sculptures of everyday items. In their new book Object Lessons, Caren (a math educator) and Lynn (an artist and art educator) use a highly visual approach to show students and teachers the art in math and the math in art. Integrating visual arts into math experiences makes the lessons accessible, engaging, and meaningful for a wide range of students. In each chapter, the authors use everyday objects to create rigorous, hands-on activities that address key mathematics standards and concepts. Each lesson provides: * an introduction to the featured object that explains how it connects to key mathematical concepts; * a discussion of the artists, art styles and techniques featured; * activities organized by grade level and math content area; * the basic materials required to prepare and teach each lesson; * a clear picture of what the lesson will look like in a classroom; and * a list of resources. The book and its accompanying CD feature a wonderful gallery of images--including art photos and student work--and a collection of links to art education organizations, museums, and Web sites that focus on the work of forty major artists.

With the original publication of Multicultural Voices, Frances Ann Day celebrated the lives of thirty-nine multicultural authors and illustrators, helping educators bring students and authors together in a way that promoted stimulating reading, imaginative writing, and cultural sensitivity. Thousands of readers not only discovered a new body of literature, they also gained new sensitivity to writing styles, language subtleties, and worldviews. Now, the new edition has been significantly revised to keep it current and make it even more useful. Day has added a number of new authors, updated the biographical profiles, included reviews and activities for more than 120 new books, and expanded the resource list for educators, librarians, and parents. There are five appendixes containing assessment plans, additional activities, lists of birthdays, a calendar of multicultural events, and information on additional resources. Plus, a comprehensive subject index helps readers plan story sessions and units of study. Themes, curricular areas, genres, and topics facilitate the use of literature across the curriculum. This guide is highly versatile, enabling readers to adapt the material to fit their individual teaching and learning styles, curriculum requirements, and educational goals. Educators, librarians, and parents alike will find the book an inspiring resource.
