Grades K – 5
Type Journal
Published April 2002
Publisher National Council of Teachers of English

 

Description  

In this issue you will read about elementary children who are introduced to genre primarily through their teachers reading aloud. The children are invited to become inquirers who continue to explore books as they meet in small groups to write and read on their own-from fantasy to African folktales to poetry.
