Effectively moving readers from theory (learning, language, literacy) to classroom practice, this book takes a balanced, comprehensive approach to teaching English. Expands on many crucial issues: constructivist principles of learning, approaches to teaching grammar, multicultural literature, reconciliation between reader response and new critical approaches to literature, readers' theater, instructional scaffolding, writing workshops, portfolios, and censorship. Covers developments new to the field: a reading cycle (enter, explore, extend), Christenbury and Kelly's questioning circle, new historical criticism, Dias's research on adolescent poetry readers, literature circles, Applebee's conversation-based planning, and authentic assessment For future secondary English teachers.
