Literacy Activities for Building Classroom Communities
What happens when a "ditto queen" finds she can no longer justify the diet of fill-in-the-blank worksheets which she has inflicted for over 20 years on hushed classrooms of students? If you're Ardith Cole, you start looking for creative activities to replace all that boring and repetitive seatwork and, when you find them, you use them to transform your classroom into a joyful and satisfying place of learning where children learn to work together cooperatively. And, when you've done that, you compose an array of classroom vignettes that demonstrate the best and most successful of these creative activities, and put it all into a highly practical book to share with other teachers.
Special Features: Includes 4 halftones, plus photocopiable charts/diagrams.
Audience: Teachers of students up to age 12 looking for practical, non-theoretical teaching assists.
