Teaching Language Arts is built on a strong theoretical and research base, and illustrated and clarified with real-life examples of children and teachers from today’s diverse classrooms. Written to reflect cutting-edge theory, new research, the latest policies, the new Common Core State Standards, and best practices in the rapidly changing world of language arts instruction, the book uses a number of practical aids to bring the concepts alive, among them the unique, highly popular Snapshots of real teachers and students, which demonstrate the many skills required to become an effective teacher in today’s challenging and diverse classrooms.

  • Engaging English Learners boxes with specific ideas for teaching English learners.
  • Media and Technology boxes that help connect chapter content to current technology standards and practices.
  • Two new Assessment Toolboxes.
