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.

It's been a decade since Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli wrote the first edition of Mentor Texts and helped teachers across the country make the most of high-quality children's literature in their writing instruction. In the second edition of this important book Lynne and Rose show teachers how to help students become confident, accomplished writers by using literature as their foundation. The second edition includes brand-new "Your Turn Lessons," built around the gradual release of responsibility model, offering suggestions for demonstrations and shared or guided writing. Reflection is emphasized as a necessary component to understanding why mentor authors chose certain strategies, literary devices, sentence structures, and words. Lynne and Rose offer new children's book titles in each chapter and in a carefully curated and annotated Treasure Chest. At the end of each chapter a "Think About It--Talk About It--Write About It" section invites reflection and conversation with colleagues. The book is organized around the characteristics of good writing--focus, content, organization, style, and conventions. Rose and Lynne write in a friendly and conversational style, employing numerous anecdotes to help teachers visualize the process, and offer strategies that can be immediately implemented in the classroom. This practical resource demonstrates the power of learning to read like writers.

Learning Journals in the K-8 Classroom is the first comprehensive presentation of how to use academic journals effectively for elementary-level instruction. The text outlines the theoretical foundations for using learning journals and provides step-by-step suggestions for implementing them in every content area and at all levels of elementary instruction. Learning journals provide resources and support for reading aloud, independent reading, mini-lessons, cooperative study, individual research, workshops, and the portfolio system. The type of interactive writing students do in learning journals helps them explore complex ideas in the content areas, using their own strengths of analysis and response; the journals then become resources for future learning, group discussions, individual conferences, learning assessment, reports, and progress. Four introductory chapters show teachers how to create their own journals, introduce journals to students, integrate them with cooperative study, and use them for assessment. Additional chapters focus on the individual curriculum areas of literature, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. The text includes sample entries from student journals at all grade levels and in every content area, and appendices of annotated resources to support journaling and interviews with teachers who use journals in their classrooms.

This comprehensive handbook shows teachers how to build a foundation for writing with effective lessons that are the key to powerful writing workshops. Writing Anchors demonstrates how to create a supportive classroom, model writing experiences, and create enthusiasm for writing among students. The practical lessons explore the major elements of writing, with explicit strategies for teaching the major forms of writing: Informational writing—detailed descriptions of ways to take and organize notes, use text features, and create reports that have voice; Poetry and personal writing— language choice, imagery, using the senses, and finding the personal pulse of the writer; Narrative—extends writing skills with lessons on story sequence, problem solving, and character development. The lessons form "metacognitive anchors" that build an understanding of the elements of powerful writing. Each lesson comes with an anchor cue card that prompts students to apply their growing understandings independently in writing workshops and in assessing their own writing. In addition, the book provides more than thirty effective tools that are ready to copy and use in the classroom—writing checklists, rubrics for assessment, graphic organizers, note-taking grids, semantic maps, story maps, tips for proofing, and student examples collected from grade 2–7 classrooms.

Noting that few syntheses of research on children's literature exist, this annotated bibliography guides teachers, researchers, and librarians who are searching for research on a particular topic, strategies for using literature in schools, or children's books on a particular topic. Section I of the book focuses on children's literature research (research reviews, books, selected articles, other published studies, and dissertations) published from January 1985 through December 1993 and includes a discussion of the procedures for identifying, listing, and annotating that research. Section II highlights professional journals that educators can use to locate reviews of children's literature, lists of books on particular topics, articles on using literature in the classroom, and research on children's literature. Section III contains annotations of many professional books on children's literature which focus on theoretical foundations, literature discussion and response, broad surveys of children's literature, sociopolitical and cultural issues, genre studies, literature across the curriculum, collections of teaching activities, and bibliographies of children's and adolescent literature. Each section of the book contains research or professional resources aimed at elementary and middle school contexts, specifically preschool through grade 8. (RS)

The authors of this book define theme immersion as "an in-depth study of a topic, an issue, or a question." Theme immersion is very different from the traditional unit or theme approach. The authors clearly point out these differences with respect to how a topic is selected, what is studied, and the roles of the teacher and the students. By inviting the reader into the classrooms of theme-immersion teachers, the authors show dramatically that the teacher does not impose or control ideas but is an active member of a community of learners. Personable and practical, Theme Immersion will be invaluable for classroom teachers who want to teach with such excitement and relevance that their students become lifelong learners. Teachers wanting to implement a theme study approach in their classrooms will find all the direction they need in Theme Immersion.

With a slender design and appealing art, Cullinan and Galda present a thought provoking discussion on how children can read to respond, read to learn, and read to enjoy. This text provides evaluation criteria for selecting superior children's books, rather than listing thousands of titles and synopses. Booklists direct readers to quality literature, and extended discussions of selected titles demonstrate the selection criteria. Multicultural literature is discussed throughout the text, with a separate chapter on more specific multicultural issues. Numerous teaching ideas, many of which are contributed by classroom teachers, provide practical applications. This is a book for teachers, stressing the use of good books in a literature based curriculum.

How do teachers communicate the writing process to their students? Multicultural Connections walks readers through the creation of a fiction work, explaining literary elements, illuminating the writing process itself, and providing activities for strengthening student writing. From creating setting, plot, tone, and character to understanding how the whole work comes together, this book gives teachers practical ways to integrate multicultural literature into their classrooms. As students begin to value their own cultural backgrounds as elements in the writing process, their interest will increase, their writing voice will become more authentic, and the learning process will accelerate.

With the generosity, thoughtfulness, and practicality we have come to appreciate from this extraordinary classroom teacher, Linda gives us the structures and models we need to invite every student we teach to think and act as a reader, writer, and artist. -Nancie Atwell Many teachers wonder how to juggle a writer's notebook and a reader's response log. Linda Rief ingeniously combines them both in the Writer's-Readers's Notebook. This veteran teacher truly walks the walk; she shows exactly how to make this powerful tool work in the classroom. -Ralph Fletcher The Readers-Writers Notebook is THE tool for all those concerned with adolescents and literacy. -Teri Lesesne Author of Naked Reading The Writer's-Reader's Notebook is the most essential learning and teaching tool in Linda Rief's classroom.

It's also where Linda can observe and encourage their learning.

She shows you how to use it to assess what students know, how they think, and how they can express themselves as writers and readers. Inside the Writer's-Reader's Notebook includes: descriptions of the reading and writing minilessons that Linda uses to get kids thinking in the notebook ideas for further invitations that engage adolescents in writing, reading, and drawing specific ways to use the lists and tools that are printed right in the Notebook dozens of reproducible examples of notebook pages by Linda's students that show the Notebook's multiple uses and that will help inspire your own students' writing and reading an annotated list of professional titles that will help further your knowledge of Notebooks and how to use them effectively in a variety of ways in your classroom.
