The third edition of this popular book again takes a balanced, comprehensive approach to teaching English—one that creates a bridge between theory/background and practices that reflect today's diverse, challenging high school classrooms. This book has been praised for its unique components: discussion of “four stages” of reading texts and “three phases” of teaching texts. The authors' many years of experience teaching English are obvious throughout the material, but nowhere more so than in their straightforward presentation of organization and planning for instruction and their firm stand on teaching grammar. This book covers the challenging and the controversial in English instruction and explores censorship, national standards, high-stakes testing, multi-lingual students, and multicultural literature. For professionals in the field of teaching.
