Smagorinsky’s book is the “ne plus ultra” of methods texts for preservice English Language Arts teachers. He advocates a constructivist approach to teaching language arts, and he deftly employs numerous illustrative examples to support and illustrate his ideas. Most importantly, this text is well written and accessible to teacher candidates. Smagorinsky uses pedagogical discourse fluently, and his conversational—yet always professional—tone helps readers to understand his ideas clearly. A staunch and unapologetic advocate of social justice education, Smagorinsky informs his teaching philosophy with empathy and equity. As my students have claimed, this text is their “bible”—they plan to keep this book dog-eared, highlighted, and annotated as they develop their teaching repertoires. They’ve let me know that they plan to rely heavily on the theory and strategies in this text throughout their student teaching experience and well into the remainder of their careers. What stronger endorsement could there be?
