Exploring Values Through Literature, Multimedia, and Literacy Events: Making Connections
Patricia Ruggiano Schmidt
Ann Watts Pailliotet
The contributors to this bookóliteracy teachers, teacher educators, and authors of literature for children and young adultsóbelieve there is a need to bring the explicit study of values into classrooms. They contend that literature, multimedia, and literacy events can be used to promote not only the language arts, but also student choice, cooperative learning, and critical thinking.
Exploring Values Through Literature, Multimedia, and Literacy Events: Making Connections highlights the important links among home, school, and global society that will help students understand one another and contribute to a cohesive community. The authors describe the work of educators and children, and the materials and strategies they use to explore values such as compassion, caring, sharing, respect, and appreciation of cultural differences.
For those who already explore values in the classroom, this book provides affirmation and many useful ideas. For those who want to learn more about how to explore values in the classroom, it offers activities to use right away.
