Literacy across the curriculum
Ablex Pub. Corp., Nov 1, 1992 - Education - 307 pages
We are truly in a new technical era where we must understand other cultures and languages and where our workforce will increasingly be limited in proficiency with English. At the time of entering the workforce this population will need a whole new set of abilities with which to function. Based on their many years of experience in the Parents Reading Conference at Fordham University, their labors at the Westchester Reading Council, and the Reading Institute at Fordham University, the authors have written an essential work addressing literacy in the classroom. Included is an examination of the issues surrounding literacy and transmission of culture, implementation issues such as how to set up and manage an interactive elementary classroom, how to evaluate student behavior using the techniques of story telling, how to translate story-telling to its visual forms, and finally an in-depth investigation into integrating literacy through all subject areas.
