Adult Nonfiction LB1048.5 .C35 1997

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

From Library Journal:

Although this work is written as a guide for parents to foster a love of learning along with the requisite skills in their children, it also provides valuable information for others who work with children‘child care workers, teachers, scoutmasters, and librarians, perhaps. Calkins is founding director of the College Teacher Writing Project and author of The Art of Teaching Writing (Heinemann, 1991), but she does not limit her attention to writing in this guide. While concentrating on individual skills in each chapter (writing, reading, playing, science, math, and more), Calkins never loses sight of her overall goal of creating interest and skills for lifelong learning. Appendixes by Bellino, an elementary school principal, help to relate Calkins's principles to the school day. Highly recommended.‘Kay L. Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills., Md. (c) Copyright 2010.
