  1. Reading Across the Curriculum by: Kim Baskin EDU 231-26

  2. Reading is an learning tool for making sense of everyday life • Students Read: • books • maps • newspapers • letters • magazines • brochures • charts

  3. Why read informational books? • Available on many topics. • Interesting and fun for children. • Children find out about the world around them. • Motivating for children. • Books can include all curriculum areas. • They are aesthetically pleasing which draws children’s attention.

  4. Informational books differ from stories in three ways: • Organizational Patterns • Vocabulary • technical terms • Special features • Includes graphs, maps, diagrams etc.

  5. Integrating stories and poetry are important because... • Literature brings content area studies to life. • Children can view yesterday’s world and today’s. • Settings of many stories provide historical and geographical information. • Conflict situations the characters face provide us glimpses into cultural, economic, and political issues. • Stories are an important way of learning social studies, science and math. • Integrate drama and role playing events. • Poetry books are also available for all content areas.

  6. Content Area Textbooks • It is recommended that teachers teach with textbooks and that they incorporate other types of reading materials and activities.

  7. Textbooks can be difficult for children... • They read differently then story books. • Textbooks only briefly touch upon a subject.

  8. Curriculum Integration • Using books to teach math concepts. • Mathematics is portrayed in a meaningful context and is fun. • Literature demonstrates that math develops out of human experience.

  9. NCTM’s recommendations • NCTM has recommended that teachers move away from traditional text and empower students to construct their own knowledge of math. Using trade books meets this recommendation.

  10. Bibliography • Literacy for the 21st Century by:Gail Tompkins. 1997, Prentice Hall, Inc. • Power Point Program created by Microsoft, 1997.
