Overview

This groundbreaking resource was the first in its field to present practical, research-based guidance on creating integrated curriculum. It has been updated to reflect cutting-edge perspectives in literacy and language arts instruction.

WEBS, the hallmark feature of An Integrated Language Perspective in the Elementary School, enable readers to easily incorporate integrated units in the classroom. The fourth edition continues to offer practical and critical curriculum paradigms, and clearly shows the reciprocal relationship between assessment and instruction. Perfect for both pre-service and in-service K–8 teachers for its accessibility, the book is solidly grounded in cognitive, linguistic, and curriculum theory, but also does an excellent job of examining what goes on in the classroom minute-by-minute, day-by-day.

Reviewers rave. . .

“One major strength of this book is its approach to literacy education—integrating reading and writing instruction using thematic units.”
—Diane Beals, University of Tulsa

“The prototypes are exemplary in that they emphasize the true interdisciplinary nature of carefully thought-out unit goals and objectives.”
Lillian McEnery, University of Houston

“Bravo! We need to begin preparing teachers to think like researchers even before they enter their classrooms. . . . It definitely does things other texts do not: it focuses on integrative teaching.”
Patricia Wheeler, Indiana State University
