Description

Literary Discussion in the Elementary School offers a rich resource for preservice and practicing teachers who want to build, extend, or enliven a program in which students explore the expanding world of children’s literature. Drawing on her thirty years as an elementary school teacher and a student of literary/literacy learning, Joy Moss presents a theoretically grounded and eminently practical vision for teaching children’s literature in the classroom. Topics addressed range from the selection of books for reading aloud, to the art of questioning, to an extended description of a thematic literary unit. Discussions about literature open up paths of intellectual inquiry that enable students to explore human values, motivations, behaviors, and interactions, thus developing deeper understandings of literature and of human life.
157 pp. 2002. Grades 2–6. ISBN 0-8141-2963-3.
