Example text

Libraries Unlimited, 1995) describes wonderful new books of nonfiction that can be read aloud to foster children's curiosity and interest in information. Author studies may focus on authors of fiction or nonfiction. Individual books can be introduced through booktalks. These methods, useful as they are, do not capitalize on the wealth of information classified by type. Many readers come to the library media center asking for a tall tale, a book about Benjamin Banneker, or a book like Charlotte's Web.

Page 8 Ask students to refresh their memory of the prior day's reading by reading, and then discussing, the reader's journal entry. Then read a second portion of the book. If you read for 20 minutes, allow half that time (10 minutes) for students to write their responses in their journals. Or hold a group discussion about the portions of the book that have been read and write a collaborative response. Allow students to generate discussion points and ask questions about the reading. Do not be too quick to fill gaps in the discussion with your own comments or questions.

Students might hold a reading fair, where each student would devise a way to share information about her or his favorite book of contemporary realistic fiction in a visual or oral presentation. The presentation might involve creating a jackdaw (a collection of objects representing characters, events, or objects in the story), role-playing one of the characters in the book, or simply talking about the book. The focus on fantasy might be culminated with a fantasy day read-in or with a fantasy character museum containing models or pictures of fantasy characters created by the students.
