Reading Strands & Writing Strands

Reading Strands description from Rainbow Resource:
Do you want a reading program without a reading curriculum? Or maybe a reading program in which the kids enjoy the “great” books, discuss them at the dinner table, and don’t even realize they’re in a reading “program”? If either answer is yes, this book is for you. And I do mean for you. Reading Strands is designed for the teacher to use. It shows you how to teach your children to appreciate fiction. Author Dave Marks wants our children to develop a love for reading, first and foremost. Reading should be fun for a child, something he/she eagerly looks forward to. They need to share their reading experience and enjoyment with others, also. Those around them need to express an interest in what they’re reading and their opinion of what they’ve read. Through oral discussion, Dave shows us how to help our children get more out of reading and begin to read for deeper understanding. Reading Strands contains simple Socratic dialogue samples, based on Bloom’s taxonomy, showing you how to discuss fiction with your children based on their age level. Literary components and terms are explained so that you can, at appropriate age levels, discuss these intelligently with your children. Mr. Marks also cautions us that, to some extent, “you are what you read.” He wants us to become serious about selecting the types of reading materials we want our children to “consume” based on what kind of people we want them to become. To aid us in selecting books, Reading Strands contains numerous reading lists: suggested books based on grade level, a graded list of books popular with reading teachers, a listing of children’s favorite books, Coretta Scott King Award Books, Caldecott Medal winners, Newbery Medal winners, Children’s Library recommendations, and a list of Great Classics. Whew! Even if you didn’t use this approach as your basic reading program, employing the ideas contained in Reading Strands would greatly enhance your children’s overall enjoyment and understanding of literature. 138 pgs, pb.

Writing Strands description from Rainbow Resource:
Author Dave Marks believes that kids become good writers by ... writing! Not by doing endless diagramming or laboring over parts of speech worksheets. He eloquently equates the process of learning to write to learning to ride a bicycle ... you get on and ride, not spend weeks, months, or years labeling the parts of a bicycle on worksheets! Mr. Marks has 27 years of experience teaching in high school and college and also homeschooled his son using this approach (yes, his son did become a writer!). The four strands of writing (argumentative, explanatory, creative and report) are explained, modeled, and practiced throughout the 8 levels. Beginning in level 3, the author speaks directly to the student, a nice touch because Mr. Marks has a tongue-in-cheek humor that makes learning to write enjoyable! We have used this program effectively. Most children begin this program in level 3. Older children may progress more quickly through the lower levels. Dave promises that “A child, at whatever age, having worked through level eight, would be ready for college-level writing.”
