Once Upon A GEMS Guide is an extraordinary
resource for educators. This hefty publication is both a handbook
and a compendium, annotating hundreds of outstanding books that
can be read in connection with GEMS (and other science and math)
The book is organized in three sections:
by specific GEMS guide, by major math strands, and by science
themes. The literature selections are chosen to emphasize meaningful,
multi-leveled connections between literature, science, and mathematics.
An introduction and other articles highlight the means and benefits
of making such connections.
The handbook is also laced with quotations, poems, letters from
teachers, and a resource section to provide teachers with information
on organizations that may be helpful as they further develop
connections across the curriculum.
