    Description: Wolf and Wolf focus on what they have learned from six exemplary teachers of writing who teach within high-stakes accountability systems in Kentucky and Washington. Based on what they observed in these classrooms and what they discussed with the teachers and their students, their response to the reality of high-stakes testing is the need to "Teach True and To the Test in Writing."

    Description: The present study investigates the experiences of 17 children--all designated by school evaluators as "remedial" readers--as they interpreted and performed text through classroom theatre. Through participant observation, audio and video recording, artifacts, and interviews, the patterns of children's text interpretation were analyzed to show how these children learned to take on the roles of actor, character, and critic in planning, performing, and evaluating their performances. As actors, the children were provided with opportunities to shoulder the "mantle of expertise," experiencing the creative and critical features of a dramatic curriculum. As critics, the children learned to emphasize the roles of rules, resources, and the bases for common knowledge in their dramatic interpretations. As characters, they shifted perspective from self to other through voice, physical action, and connection to other characters. This year-long study details how these children moved from a perception of drama as uninhibited expression much influenced by media experiences to a perception of the bounded and negotiated nature of theatrical production influenced by careful text interpretation.

    Description: Readers Theatre is an alternative instruction technique in teaching reading skills to remedial-labeled children. This method provides the opportunity for language-deficient students to develop their own interpretation of material content through oral presentation. An innovative way of reading instruction, Readers Theatre deviates from traditional teaching in that it centers more on the development of students' literacy comprehension. A case study shows a favorable response toward this teaching method.

    Description: This landmark volume is the first to bring together leading scholarship on children’s and young adult literature from three intersecting disciplines: Education, English, and Library and Information Science. Distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach, it describes and analyzes the different aspects of literary reading, texts, and contexts to illuminate how the book is transformed within and across different academic figurations of reading and interpreting children’s literature. Part one considers perspectives on readers and reading literature in home, school, library, and community settings. Part two introduces analytic frames for studying young adult novels, picturebooks, indigenous literature, graphic novels, and other genres. Chapters include commentary on literary experiences and creative production from renowned authors and illustrators. Part three focuses on the social contexts of literary study, with chapters on censorship, awards, marketing, and literary museums. The singular contribution of this Handbook is to lay the groundwork for colleagues across disciplines to redraw the map of their separately figured worlds, thus to enlarge the scope of scholarship and dialogue as well as push ahead into uncharted territory. "Overall, this is an indispensible collection for any educator, scholar, librarian, reader, or writer who is looking to expand her understanding of the varied perspectives of children’s and young adult literature." — Children's Literature in Education "The editors of this useful volume successfully bridge the disciplinary divisions that run through much of the scholarship on children’s literature. The volume includes essays by scholars in education, English, and library and information science; these diverse contributors stress the value of taking an interdisciplinary approach to the study of children’s literature." —Children’s Literature Association Quarterly "There is absolutely no valid reason not to own this book or have ready access to it at your institution." --The Learning Assistance Review "Wolf and her fellow editors present a great deal of excellent material that will prove helpful to those embarking on their own study of the subject.

    Description: Clearly organized and beautifully written, Interpreting Literature With Children is a remarkable book that stands on the edge of two textbook genres: the survey of literature text and the literary criticism text. Neither approach, however, says enough about how children respond to literature in everyday classroom situations. That is the mission of this book. It begins by providing a solid foundation in both approaches and then examines multiple ways of developing children's literary interpretation through talk, through culture, class, and gender, as well as through creative modes of expression, including writing, the visual arts, and drama. The result is a balanced resource for teachers who want to deepen their understanding of literature and literary engagement. Because of its modest length and price and its ongoing focus on how to increase student engagement with literature, either pre-service or practicing teachers can use this text in children's literature, language arts, or literacy and language courses. Contents: Prologue: Engagement Beyond the Edges of the Earth. Part I: Salutations! Learning About Literature. Critical Perspectives. Literary Elements in Prose & Poetry. Part II: Ways of Taking From Literature. Talking About Literature. Culture & Class in Children's Literature. Gender in Children's Literature. Part III: Ways of Doing Literature. Interpreting Literature Through Writing. Interpreting Literature Through the Visual Arts. Interpreting Literature Through Drama. Epilogue: How Like the Mind.
