Description  

Recognizing that the literacy demands that our students now face require their active involvement in their own learning, the author and three other successful teachers have developed a wide variety of ways to encourage that involvement.

 

This lesson is based on Deb Foertsch's Large-Group Instruction, as described in Sierra-Perry, Martha. 1996. Standards in Practice: Grades 3-5. Urbana: NCTE. pp. 2-25.
