Review:

Laurie Eilish-Piper says:

This book has it all ― a perfect balance of research, practical applications, and real-life examples.  With this book as their guide, beginning teachers will learn everything they need to know to get started with language arts instruction.  They will learn about the traditional language arts ― writing, spelling, reading, and oral language, but they will also learn much more.  This book will guide them through understanding how to support English Language Learners, how to incorporate technology into their teaching, and how to differentiate language arts instruction.  As my students often say, “This book is a keeper!” It is a valuable resource that beginning teachers will rely on for answers, ideas, and encouragement as they begin their teaching careers.

 

From the Back Cover:

In this innovative text, distinguished authors Donna Ogle and Jim Beers bring language arts to life for teachers through a focus on contemporary communication and visual literacy, coupled with varied genre and electronic resources. This book focuses on helping teachers ensure that students learn to use language to communicate with others effectively in our increasingly culturally and linguistically diverse society ―a nd to draw upon the greatest resource at their disposal to do this: the language power of their students themselves. 

 

Unlike any other book on the market, Engaging in the Language Arts offers readers a firsthand look at the language challenges teachers face in today’s classrooms, how to identify language possibilities, and how to make optimal use of these possibilities in their own classrooms.

 

The new second edition improves upon the well-lauded first edition in a number of ways, including:

  • Key Teaching Strategy with rubrics appears in all of the instructional chapters and present an effective language arts strategy that can be used in the classroom with a corresponding rubric to help teachers evaluate their own success in teaching with the strategies. Examples include Language Experience, DR-TA, K-W-L, Shared Writing, and more.
  •  The new common core standards being implemented across the US are included and highlighted.
  •  The newly revised NCTE/IRA standards are included and referenced throughout the book.
  •  Sections on Children Who Struggle are included in all instructional chapters.
  •  Exploring Technology boxes, found in all chapters, include useful URLs that teachers can use in the classroom or to help them find meaningful content, or that they can use with student who struggle .
  •  Marginal A+RISE®Teaching Strategies align with relevant concepts in the main body of the text and give teachers in grades K-12 quick, research-based strategies to get to the “how” of targeting their instruction and making content accessible for all students, including English language learners.
