This innovative book shows teachers how to build knowledge and skills as they explore literary genres and themes with their students. These one-of-a-kind projects emerge from genre studies featuring novels, picture books, poetry, non-fiction and storytelling. Relationships, interdependence, heroes, the environment, past and present and multiculturalism are explored in new and unusual ways. Assessment and evaluation are major components of the book and teachers will find ready-to-copy checklists, rubrics and observation sheets that will save valuable classroom time. A Project Approach to Language Learning is highly readable with a rich selection of authentic written, visual, oral and dramatic student work. Organised for easy classroom use, each chapter includes background information and a brief overview of the genre and the skills developed. Teachers will find a step-by-step explanation of each project with core and extension activities to meet individual needs of specific students. Learning celebrations that foster a sense of community in the classroom are an integral part of each project. A comprehensive useful list of theme-related text sets that include trade books, reference materials, novels, picture books, short stories, poems and tradition folklore complement this remarkable text.
