For undergraduate/graduate-level courses in Reading Methods, Middle School Reading/Literacy, and Literature-based Reading/Writing. Using a holistic, interdisciplinary approach, this text explores, in-depth, the application of literature-based reading and writing in grades 4-8. It balances the use of authentic children's literature with a basal approach, and features class-tested models and examples that beginning teachers -- or those seeking new methods -- can apply directly to the classroom. Part I provides a straightforward discussion of theory; Part II applies the theory to practice.
