Accessible and hands-on yet grounded in research, this book addresses the "whats," "whys," and "how-tos" of integrating literacy instruction and the arts in grades K-8. Even teachers without any arts background will gain the skills they need to bring music, drama, visual arts, and dance into their classrooms. Provided are a wealth of specific resources and activities that other teachers have successfully used to build students' oral language, concepts of print, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and writing, while also promoting creativity and self-expression. Special features include reproducible worksheets and checklists for developing, evaluating, and implementing arts-related lesson plans.

The Handbook of Research on Teaching Literacy Through the Communicative and Visual Arts, Volume II brings together state-of-the-art research and practice on the evolving view of literacy as encompassing not only reading, writing, speaking, and listening, but also the multiple ways through which learners gain access to knowledge and skills. It forefronts as central to literacy education the visual, communicative, and performative arts, and the extent to which all of the technologies that have vastly expanded the meanings and uses of literacy originate and evolve through the skills and interests of the young. A project of the International Reading Association, published and distributed by Routledge/Taylor & Francis.

LITERATURE AND THE CHILD, 8th Edition, covers the two major topical areas of children’s literature: the genres of children’s literature (picturebooks, contemporary realistic fiction, etc.) and the use of children’s literature in the classroom. The book offers succinct yet beautifully written and illustrated discussions that reflect the tone and feel of children’s books. Featuring discussions of the latest works of children’s literature, the book includes coverage of the growing importance of young adult literature as well as emphasis on upper-level children’s literature and adolescent literature. The authors pay careful attention to diversity in children’s literature and equip readers with practical, research-based teaching ideas linked to the Common Core English Language Arts Standards for grades kindergarten through eight.
