Description

Lesley Mandel Morrow presents a convincing case for motivating children to read through a literature-based reading and writing program. This eight-month study tracks 166 second graders of various ethnic backgrounds in an urban setting. As Morrow demonstrates from thoughtful consideration of the data, children’s literacy performance is enhanced by a wide variety of literature, enjoyable teacher-modeled literacy activities, and a physical environment (and the time to use it) that encourages social collaboration in literacy activities. NCTE Research Report No. 28. 103 pp. 1996. Grades K-6. ISBN 0-8141-1562-4.
No. 15624
