Reading for Life in the Elementary School is designed to provide a basis of practical theory for the classroom teacher who is moving towards or using an holistic integrated language program. Each chapter begins with a classroom story then goes on to explicate the ways in which the story reflects sound language practice. Teachers will find suggestions for organizing a classroom reading and language program, ideas to share with parents, and an explicit readable outline of the theory and research.
