From the Publisher:

This comprehensive English methods book brings together established tradition, current theory and research, and innovative classroom practice for future secondary English teachers. Basic principles of learning, language, and literature that inform practice are clearly presented...and an account of actual practice -- approaches, strategies, activities, materials, and texts -- occupies the major portion of the twelve chapters.

From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive English methods text grounds students in theory and prepares them for practice. It provides a huge array of active, constructivist, student-centered approaches and activities to ensure that students enter their own classrooms armed with the knowledge and tools they need to be effective teachers.

 

In this fifth edition the authors retain the strengths of the previous editions, while also addressing new developments in the field of English education, of education in general, and of the culture.
