Teaching with author web sites, K-8.


Teaching with author web sites, K-8.

Reissman, Rose Cherie and Mark Gura.

137 pages




Reissman, who teaches literacy, project-based learning, oral law history, law-related education, museums in schools, and graduate education courses, and Gura (graduate education, Fordham U. and Touro College) explain how to use author websites to enhance students' engagement with reading in grades K-8. They use the sites of authors Eric Carle, T.A. Barron, Judy Blume, and several illustrators to show how author websites require minimal equipment and technology skills and are easy to use. They review their basic components and application to instruction, how they fit into standards-based curriculum and literacy and social studies content, and how students can create their own websites.
