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.

- 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.
