9780325008172: Making the Journey, Third Edition: Being and Becoming a Teacher of English Language Arts

 

Making the Journey is a staple of secondary English methods courses and teacher libraries because it not only provides practical advice on what to do in the classroom and how to act, but also offers a realistic but optimistic sense of what it means to embrace the practice of good teaching. Now, trusted educator, writer, and researcher Leila Christenbury has returned with a remarkable new edition of her classic.

 

The third edition of Making the Journey will be both refreshingly new and satisfyingly familiar to those who’ve come to rely on Christenbury’s wisdom and uncommon common sense.

Even more important, Christenbury has devoted new sections to discussing instructional and political topics crucial to the contemporary teacher
