Overview

Personable and practical, Theme Immersion is invaluable for classroom teachers who want to make their teaching so exciting and relevant that their students will become lifelong learners. The book shows how themes should emerge from the experiences and current needs of students, rather than adhere to the seasons or follow prepackaged models. While basing theme immersion on a sound theoretical framework provided by Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky, and Wells, the authors always translate that theory into practice, carefully illustrating aspects of theme immersion with teacher profiles, interviews, and classroom vignettes.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Though grounded in research, this text is very practical. . . . The writing style is conversational. You feel as if you are listening in as the authors share their thoughts and ideas. And you feel their encouragement: "Plant thy feet in midair and proceed!" they tell us. And we feel, "Sure! Why not?"”–Language Arts
