Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is the book elementary educators have been waiting for--an approach for integrating language and science literacies in ways that maintain the integrity of both. Integrating Instruction couples pedagogy with practice to ensure that children learn to think scientifically using the tools of literacy. This book belongs on the shelf of every teacher who views the classroom as a window to the natural and literate worlds."--Nancy Frey, PhD, School of Teacher Education, San Diego State University

"With so much talk about integrated teaching, finally here's a book that shows how--from creating a conducive learning environment and planning specific instructional units/lessons to utilizing available technology and developing valid assessment. In highly accessible language and format, McKee and Ogle have put together a text that offers useful guidelines, practical strategies, and concrete examples for integrating reading/language arts and science. This book is a valuable resource for elementary preservice and inservice teachers who hope to design and implement an inquiry-based curriculum that integrates literacy and content areas."--Zhihui Fang, PhD, School of Teaching and Learning, College of Education, University of Florida

"Curriculum integration has long been recognized as a critical component of best practices in classroom teaching. By exposing the rich connections between language literacy and science literacy, McKee and Ogle offer primary and elementary teachers a highly practical and inspiring guide for effectively blending instruction. Their efforts at encouraging our active experimentation with these methods are to be celebrated and will surely lead to rich and meaningful experiences for students as they achieve essential literacy goals across content areas."--Alan D. Rossman, PhD, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, National-Louis University

"A priceless volume! Integrating literacy strategies within the content area of science is a productive way to organize the learning environment. McKee and Ogle address many important instructional aspects, including assessment, unit planning, differentiation strategies, and classroom management techniques. Many teachers needlessly fear teaching science, and McKee and Ogle provide teacher-friendly information for implementing best practices in elementary classrooms."--Marie Donnantuono, MS, College of Education, William Paterson University

Language Arts

"This is a comprehensive, research-based text replete with examples from real classrooms....Teachers reading this text could lift ideas and strategies directly from these examples to use in their own classrooms. The authors also address the basics of how to organize a classroom to support integrated instruction. They offer detailed plans for setting up the classroom with learning centers and provide tips for planning daily and yearly schedules....This is a well-organized and hands-on text that should be embraced by elementary teachers who want to implement best practices in science/literacy teaching."--Language Arts

"Of all the strategies introduced, McKee and Ogle's coverage of writing-to-learn is the most insightful, underscoring the importance of writing within scientific practice. Through the use of detailed vignettes, a portrait of richly literacy-integrated science instruction emerges. ...With examples like this, practitioners with competence in literacy instruction and with a good grasp of inquiry science should have plenty of ideas for modifying their instruction."--PsycCRITIQUES
