Chalk Talk: The Importance of Using Literature in all Content Areas
Literature can and should be used to enhance everything students learn, not just material that is taught in English class. There is a wide array of books and other types of reading material that can effectively be used to support instruction in science, math, and social studies. For instance, if students are learning about the Holocaust, 'The Diary of Anne Frank' should be available to them. Teachers should create literature notebooks that list texts and their descriptions that relate to topics that they teach throughout the year. These books can be added to the classroom library and pulled when specific content is being taught. Teachers can use various types of texts at different levels, including picture books, magazines, newspapers, comics or graphic novels, etc. School librarians can help in building literature collections for different topics. It is up to teachers to decide whether or not the literature will actually be used in the lessons or if it will just be available for students to read during their own time. Either way, teachers should always possess grade-appropriate literature that supplements the curriculum.
