Relevant Literacy Lessons
Here’s what a few educators have said about the Building Bridges book:
“Building Bridges is an excellently structured, comprehensive, and exciting resource, guaranteed to help foster inclusion and a sense of community while simultaneously creating enjoyable learning experiences for children. The lesson plans, in addition to the vast bank of games and activities, are of brilliant use to teachers for literacy development and social studies learning. In addition, the book helps foster meaningful links between school and home life, enabling parents to play an active role in their child’s education.” Maire Garry, Elementary School Teacher
“Building Bridges is a tremendous resource that is practical and contains relevant literacy lessons rooted in best practice. the background information section of the lesson plans provides preservice teachers with essential knowledge and materials important for lesson implementation. Additionally, the procedures are clearly written and easy to follow with strategically placed leveled questions. I particularly like the section on current research supporting the use of dual language books so preservice teachers can truly understand its value and practice in the classroom. Building Bridges is invaluable for any classroom.” Lisa Gordon, Adjunct Professor, Department of Literacy, West Chester University
