Overview

With continuing attention to constructivist theory and reflective practice, this book offers a comprehensive, realistic, integrated approach to teaching English language arts to middle and secondary school learners.

In this fourth edition, content has undergone major reorganization and chapters have been significantly rearranged. Individual chapters on specific language arts are linked through a common focus on the reality of the language arts classroom, the responsibilities of the language arts teacher, and the means to meet these responsibilities through thoughtful, reflective, holistic teaching.

For current and pre-service middle and secondary school English teachers.
