An Integrated Language Perspective in the Elementary School: An Action Approach

Front Cover
Pearson Allyn and Bacon, 2006 - Education - 438 pages
This groundbreaking resource was the first in its field to present practical, research-based guidance on creating integrated curriculum. It has been updated to reflect cutting-edge perspectives in literacy and language arts instruction.

WEBS, the hallmark feature of An Integrated Language Perspective in the Elementary School, enable readers to easily incorporate integrated units in the classroom. The fourth edition continues to offer practical and critical curriculum paradigms, and clearly shows the reciprocal relationship between assessment and instruction. Perfect for both pre-service and in-service K 8 teachers for its accessibility, the book is solidly grounded in cognitive, linguistic, and curriculum theory, but also does an excellent job of examining what goes on in the classroom minute-by-minute, day-by-day.

Bravo! We need to begin preparing teachers to think like researchers even before they enter their classrooms. . . . It definitely does things other texts do not: it focuses on integrative teaching.
