In Learning Under the Influence of Language and Literature, Lester Laminack and Reba Wadsworth demonstrated how to make the read—aloud a strong supporting structure for literacy learning across the day. Now with Reading Aloud Across the Curriculum they reveal how the read—aloud can strengthen students’ abilities and achievement in other subject areas.


Reading Aloud Across the Curriculum is a practical guide to expanding your read—aloud instruction to accomplish literacy—based goals in four key subject areas—math, social studies, language arts, and science. You’ll find strategic advice for planning thematic, content—driven units that use reading aloud to scaffold understanding and increase engagement. Beginning with smart ideas for introducing students to new content through picture books, Laminack and Wadsworth share ideas for assembling themed sets of children’s literature that help kids use the predictable structures of the read—aloud to connect with new ideas. Then Reading—Aloud Across the Curriculum provides suggestions for helping students do research that extends the knowledge they’ve gotten from whole—class readings and build a bridge from literacy skills to content knowledge. Laminack and Wadsworth give you three specific units of study each for social studies, language arts, science, and even math—twelve units altogether. Each comes with dozens of recommended titles, over 400 in all!


Full of useful planning tips, classroom—tested strategies, and Laminack and Wadsworth’s trademark enthusiasm for children’s literature, Reading Aloud Across the Curriculum doesn’t just pick up where its predecessor left off—it takes you and your students to whole new levels of cross—curricular engagement
