9780415931724: Rethinking Language Arts: Passion and Practice (Teaching and Thinking)

In Rethinking Language Arts: Passion and Practice, Second Edition, author Nina Zaragoza uses the form of letters to her students to engage pre-service teachers in reevaluating teaching practices, thus bringing to life a vision of an alternative classroom environment in which the teacher is the prime mover and creative leader. Zaragoza discusses and explains the need for teachers to be decision makers, reflective thinkers, political beings, and agents of social change in order to create a positive and inclusive classroom setting. This book is both a critical text that deconstructs the way language arts are traditionally taught in our schools as well as a visionary text with clear, no-nonsense directions on how to provide much needed change in our schools.

About the Author:

Nina Zaragoza is currently an English Language Teacher/ Consultant at The American Home in Vladimir, Russia.

Review:

"[Zaragoza's] views have received more than customary acceptance in the past by education professors who assign required reading material in their courses on language arts instruction in elementary schools."
-Teacher's College Record
"Interweaving stories, dialogues, plays, poetry, lesson plans, course designs, and students' journals with reflections on philosophical, pedagogical, political and psychological questions arising in teaching, Nina Zaragoza unfolds before our eyes the drama of educating our young, with all its challenges and paradoxes and joy and rewards. In the spirit of Paulo Freire and in her aspiration to "Be the change you want to see," the author of "Rethinking Language Arts] compels us to ponder what it is to be a teacher and helps us learn how to be a good one.."
-Xin Liu Gale, Author of "Teachers, Discourses, and Authority in the Postmodern Composition Classroom
