Book Description

June 2 2008 0176441336 978-0176441333 4
Children develop their language abilities through meaningful interactions with people in storytime, at mealtimes, during chores, while playing and while at school. In the classroom, the teacher serves as a language model, providing opportunities for talking about ideas and demonstrating literacy. Constructing Meaning: Balancing Elementary Language Arts, 4th edition, is an introduction to teaching elementary language arts from an integrated, balanced, and social constructive approach. It balances the theoretical and practical considerations of language acquisition for both future and current teachers. Balance is a key theme throughout the book, and current debates find their place beside teaching strategies and grade-appropriate reading selections.

4.0 out of 5 stars A textbook actually worth buying... Feb. 7 2011
Good text. Nice that it's Alberta curriculum, and active teachers in the province. Some of the teachers cited were actually people I worked with on my IPT. Very relevant, worth the money, even if you don't really need it for the class, keep it for your teaching!

I bought this book because it was a required textbook, but will keep it as a reference book because I can see myself making use of it in the classroom.
