According to Lisa M. Ciecierski & William P. Bintz- "When teachers use authentic literature, students learn content area material more efficiently and effectively. George & Stix (2000) refer to this as helping content area material come alive. Moreover, authentic literature engages students’ in higher order thinking skills (George & Stix, 2000; Villano, 2005) and maximizes students’ understanding of the specific content being studied (Atkinson, Matusevich, & Huber, 2009; Shelley, 2007; Taliaferro, 2009; Villano, 2005). In sum, when teachers use authentic literature, good things happen not only in language arts, but also across the curriculum." We live in a global society and if we take the time to educate our youth, we will be able to see a more open and accepting society. If I get a chance to receive this authentic literature, they will be used as read alouds. We will review vocabulary and students will be able to retell and show their understanding in different projects, ranging from presentations, posters, diagrams, plays, etc. The sky is the limit!!!
