Partnerships for Classroom Learning: From Reading Buddies to Pen Pals to the Community and the World Beyond

Front Cover
Partnerships for Classroom Learning presents simple strategies for helping children work cooperatively with others in their school and beyond. A partnership can be as simple as a paired reading program with a student in another class or as ambitious as a full twinning program with a school in another hemisphere. Drawing on extensive classroom experience, numerous student samples, and lively anecdotes, Partnerships for Classroom Learning helps teachers explore the learning value of a variety of innovative partnerships. This resource offers a wealth of ideas for setting up a partnership program: practical suggestions for how to get started - and how to keep going; planning grids and other tools to make implementation easier; helpful ideas for integrating partnership programs into all subject areas; notes on evaluating partnership programs; and demonstrations of partnership programs in action. This innovative handbook will show teachers how they can invite the world into their classroom and create new learning opportunities for all.
