This book presents Concept-Oriented Reading Instruction (CORI), a research-supported framework for integrating curriculum with instruction and fostering long-term engagement in reading. CORI is a practical model that helps K-6 teachers plan integrated units of instruction based on their own interests and strengths as well as their state's curricular requirements. Demonstrated are compelling ways to: *Connect reading and writing to science, social studies, or math *Create an active, collaborative classroom environment *Use real-world observations to promote strategic thinking and learning *Get students involved in setting and pursuing their own knowledge goals *Develop creative assignments, build student portfolios, and evaluate progress The book is replete with concrete examples showing the CORI approach in action, including lively descriptions and photographs of a semester-long grade 2-3 weather unit. Also included are useful reproducible planning tools and assessment materials.

This is a biography of Wilson Alwyn Bentley, the farmer from Jericho, Vermont, who took over five thousand photomicrographs of ice, dew, frost, and -- especially -- snow crystals. Although his photographs were taken between 1885 and 1931, they have never been equalled and are in great demand today. Bentley's story is one of courage and persistence against tremendous odds. He taught himself how to photograph snow crystals through a microscope while still in his teens and then pursued his obsession for years before having the beauty and scientific value of his work recognised by others. 'The Snowflake Man' lays open the life of a simple, self-educated, sensitive man who pursued natural beauty with microscope and camera for nearly fifty years. The book contains 30 black and white photographs.
