Early literacy : a constructivist foundation for whole language by Constance Kamii( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to consider early literacy education and whole language from the perspective of constructivist theory (which states that human beings acquire knowledge by building it from the inside in interaction with the environment) and research. More specifically, the book intends to show that the whole language movement is part of a larger revolution in thinking about learning and teaching, and to enable whole language advocates to explain, evaluate, and improve upon their beliefs and practices on the basis of a scientific, explanatory theory about how children acquire knowledge. The first four chapters of the book describe constructivism and the research supporting it, while the rest of the book deals with classroom practices and related issues such as assessment. The book's nine chapters and their authors are as follows: (1) "What is Constructivism?" (Constance Kamii); (2) "Literacy Acquisition and the Representation of Language" (Emilia Ferreiro); (3) "Principles of Spelling Found in the First Two Grades (Francois Siegrist and Hermina Sinclair); (4) "Spelling in Kindergarten: A Constructivist Analysis Comparing Spanish-Speaking and English-Speaking Children" (Constance Kamii and others); (5) "Learning to Read in New Zealand" (Brian Cutting and Jerry L. Milligan); (6) "Shared Book Experience: Teaching Reading Using Favorite Books" (Don Holdaway); (7) "Modeled Writing: Reflections on the Constructive Process" (Maryann Manning and Gary Manning); (8) "Reading to Know" (Barbara A. Lewis and Roberta Long); and (9) "An Approach to Assessment in Early Literacy" (Brenda S. Engel). Six pages of chapter notes and references, and 80 general references are attached. (SR)
Reading and writing in the middle grades : a whole-language view by Gary L Manning( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic assumption of this book is that reading and writing in school should be natural and enjoyable for children, and its ideas are based on the Piagetian theory that knowledge is constructed by each individual and the psycholinguistic view that learning takes place best when viewed as holistic and when instructional materials for children are authentic and purposeful. The book describes the constructive nature of children's thinking, reading, and writing, and the natural development of these processes. Chapter 1 discusses a model of literacy learning and the role of teachers in creating sound literacy programs for their pupils. Chapters 2 and 3 present instructional ideas that support the literacy development of middle grade students. Chapter two centers on developing readers; some of the topics covered include reading aloud, literature sets, reading conferences, book talks, strategy lessons, and reading journals and logs. Chapter 3 focuses on developing writers and discusses various aspects of the writing workshop, writing outside the workshop, and assessment of writing--only those ideas which are consistent with a whole language view of literacy development have been included. Chapter 4 comments on specific questions about the whole language approach to reading and writing. Appendixes list publishers of students' writing, selected favorite books, selected poetry collections, and some discourse forms for content writing. A 19-item annotated bibliography and 27 references are attached. (Mg)

Theme immersion : inquiry-based curriculum in elementary and middle schools by Maryann Murphy Manning( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of this book define theme immersion as "an in-depth study of a topic, an issue, or a question." Theme immersion is very different from the traditional unit or theme approach. The authors clearly point out these differences with respect to how a topic is selected, what is studied, and the roles of the teacher and the students. By inviting the reader into the classrooms of theme-immersion teachers, the authors show dramatically that the teacher does not impose or control ideas but is an active member of a community of learners. Personable and practical, Theme Immersion will be invaluable for classroom teachers who want to teach with such excitement and relevance that their students become lifelong learners. Teachers wanting to implement a theme study approach in their classrooms will find all the direction they need in Theme Immersion

The eight chapters in this book are designed to present a rationale for a developmental reading program in the middle school and to provide middle school teachers with concrete suggestions for teaching reading.

The third and fourth chapters provide practical suggestions for the development of reading activities for students at different ability levels. Chapters five and six examine the various content areas of the middle school curriculum and suggest how teachers of these subjects can stress reading improvement. Chapter seven offers ways to increase recreational reading among students, and chapter eight discusses ways to evaluate reading programs. (Fl)

Kindergarten Children from Different Socioeconomic Levels : Their Knowledge of Common Forms of Print by Maryann Murphy Manning( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study investigated the knowledge kindergartners have constructed about the content and purpose of print in a variety of forms. It sought to identify their perceptions about literacy episodes that occur in the home, and to identify differences across socioeconomic levels. Subjects were 70 kindergarten children in or near a large Southern city, representing 16 urban poverty class (UP) children, 33 lower urban working class (UW) children, 10 suburban middle class (SM) children, and 11 suburban upper class (SU) children. Children were interviewed individually. Results showed that children from SU and SM backgrounds indicated they were read to more frequently than children from UP backgrounds, had greater familiarity with books, and had a better idea about book sources such as the public library. Children from SU backgrounds also reported that their parents liked to read, and they and their parents wrote more often at home than children from UP groups. The UP children knew a great deal about mail, and most children in the study were very aware of the newspaper. Therefore, teachers should use a variety of reading and writing activities related to mail and to the newspaper to make literacy connections between home and school. (Three tables of data are included, and an appendix of the interview questions is attached.) (SR)
