Abstract

Quality literature for children supports the development of their language abilities by providing models of language. A literature-based language arts program extended across the curriculum can extend children's language growth. For this study, a literature-based language arts program has been extended to the social studies area providing opportunities to study content and to engage in the thinking-language processes. The example unit for grade four will be Appalachia. After a review of the professional literature, the unit supported by the different genres offering opportunities to engage in expressive activity will be presented.
