9780867094633: The English Language Arts Handbook: Classroom Strategies for Teachers

In an age when political pressures and the cry for accountability threaten to reduce English teaching to a set of skills, Susan and Stephen Tchudi present a better alternative. They call for a thorough grounding in the theory of language and language learning, and creative application of that theory in the classroom. The English Language Arts Handbook offers both.

With this second edition, the Tchudis continue to combine theory and practice, demonstrating new ways to challenge and broaden students' language and thinking. Each chapter begins with a concise overview of a specific theory regarding literacy education, which is then followed by activities that put that theory into practice. All of the material has been completely updated, featuring new information on:

  • use of the Internet for research, collaboration, and student exchange
  • multicultural opportunities for teaching and learning
  • gender equity in classrooms
  • professional development
  • community building for classrooms and teachers
  • creative classroom practices that integrate reading, writing, speaking, listening, and artistic activity.
The Tchudis wrote The English Language Arts Handbook because they believe that the English classroom-in fact all classrooms-should be places for joyful exploration of the word and world. Both preservice and inservice teachers will find the book an inspiring and highly useful resource.
