Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph about spiders from the Learning Guide to Charlotte's Web.
Charlotte's description of the life of a spider is pretty accurate, except that they don't talk or spell. Most spiders live only one season and reproduce by spinning egg sacs. Spiders with webs catch their prey in the web, inject a venom that starts the digestion process and then drink the digested juice within the animal's body. (Spiders don't really drink blood. The prey's body is predigested by the poison the spider injects making the inside of the prey a kind of soup. The spiders drink the soup.) Young spiders disperse by sending out strands of silk, called balloons, and riding the air currents to a new home.
The Learning Guide to the film Charlotte's Web contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
