A Conceptual Base for Teaching Reading and Writing in School Settings
Author: Stephen B. Kucer
Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
This popular text, now in its fourth edition, “unpacks” the various dimensions of literacy—linguistic and other sign systems; cognitive; sociocultural; and developmental—and at the same time accounts for the interrelationships among them. Distinguished by its examination of literacy from a multidimensional and interdisciplinary perspective, it provides a strong conceptual foundation upon which literacy curriculum and instruction in school settings can be grounded. Linking theory and research to practice in an understandable, user-friendly manner, the text provides in-depth coverage of the dimensions of literacy, includes demonstrations and “hands-on” activities, examines authentic reading and writing events that reflect key concepts, and summarizes the concepts in tables and figures. Changes in the Fourth Edition • Addresses academic language, new literacies/multiliteracies, and their relationship to literacy learning • More fully develops the developmental dimension of literacy in separate chapters on adult mediation and learner construction • Expands the discussion of multimodal literacies • Extends and integrates the discussion of bilingualism and biliteracy throughout the text • Integrates instructional implications more fully throughout
This text examines the National Curriculum Physical Education to Key Stage 1 in the light of recent changes. It identifies six basic principles which provide the foundation for the rationale, curriculum content, the teaching and the planning processes required in providing a balanced programme for children aged 3 to 7 years. Special attention is paid to movement education for children of nursery age, providing as it does a sound foundation for later work in the early years. Games, gymnastics, dance and swimming are covered in detail and sample units of work for each group provide students in initial teacher training and teachers with valuable materials for use in schools. The final chapter looks at the role of the curriculum leader or co-ordinator for physical education at Key Stage 1, offering guidance on how to agree and implement a common school policy.
