Editorial Reviews

Review

"The idea of pruning the language arts down to the essentials is brilliant, as most language arts textbooks these days are getting too cumbersome."

Bonnie Armbruster, University of Illinois

 

"I like the organization. I like how it moves from authentic, real classroom experiences to the meat on why teaching is important and why assessment should play a role in the teaching of skills. I would not rearrange anything."

Debra Price, Sam Houston State University

 

"I think the author is on the right track. Areas are covered in an approach that works for presenting a view of the essentials. For preservice teachers, this would make an appropriate book for a site-based language arts course where students spend less time in class and more in practicum experience in real elementary classrooms."  

Cindy Wilson, Southwest Missouri State University

From the Back Cover

 This new book from the leading name in the fields of literacy and language arts has been crafted to provide the most concise, research driven, critical information for the language arts.  The book is divided into six parts, with each part covering the essentials, strategies, and classroom practices appropriate to the topic. General K-12 Language Arts teachers.

I really love this book. My professor uses it heavily in the course, and I am grateful, because I might not have taken sufficient time to delve into the concepts within the text otherwise. I am a very busy working student, but this book is easy to read and absolutely packed with rich, inspiring instruction activities that are flexible according to the group of students and text being used within the classroom.
