Item description for Covering the With Stories: Six Cross-cultural Projects That Teach Literacy and Thinking Through Dramatic Play by Sharon Ginnis, Paul Ginnis & Dorothy Heathcote...
Covering the Curriculum with Stories includes six cross-curricular projects (with two more available on a supplementary CD) that will deliver outstanding individual learning experiences. They provide a fascinating and fun framework for delivering curriculum content and key skills. More importantly they give children the opportunity to identify and develop their learning styles, multiple intelligences and thinking skills.
Various dramatic tools are explained in detail and the simple clear instructions in each drama lead the teacher through the whole process with the minimum of effort. Many extension activities are suggested along the way to enhance the learning experience. This long awaited follow up to the best selling, The Teacher s Toolkit, this volume will be welcomed by teachers and student teachers alike--it is well researched, well written and clearly laid out.
Each project will help the teacher make major contributions to pupils' literacy and literary skills and teach a whole repertoire of thinking skills. Each includes elements of math, science, history, citizenship, geography, art and design, religious education, design and technology, personal, social and health education. The book tells you all that you need to know to teach the projects successfully. At your fingertips, for each project, you have a clear overview with precise learning outcomes, simple, clear, step-by-step instructions, and in some cases, the very words you need to say.
