Explore how outstanding fiction and nonfiction titles can be integrated into thematic inquiry in preschool and elementary classrooms. Each thematic inquiry unit has four sections: Read it! describes a sample dialogic reading of one of the fiction or nonfiction books; Integrate it! gives concrete examples of how specialized subjects and technology can be integrated with the fiction or nonfiction selections; Do it! describes hands-on activities that are integral to the use of fiction and nonfiction for inquiry; and Assess it! enumerates across-the-curriculum standards met in the thematic inquiry. Targeted to teachers, librarians, and literacy coaches who work with preschool and elementary students, this is also a powerful and practical resource for administrators, parents, consultants, and professors interested in employing inquiry-based learning.
