BCC for Cox: Teaching Language Arts: A Student and Response Centered Classroom, 6/e

 

Renowned for its authoritative, comprehensive coverage of the contemporary language arts classroom, the sixth edition of Teaching Language Arts provides a balance of student-centered and teacher-directed instruction that includes many examples from today's classrooms.

 

The Sixth Edition Continues to Garner Praise From Your Colleagues:

“I appreciate attention to all of the English Language Arts communication areas, model lessons, and links to standards. It just keeps getting better and better over time, which is a credit to the author.”

-Mary F. Heller, Kansas State University

 

“It includes information on emergent biliteracy and on ELL in more depth than other textbooks I have previewed. “

-Colleen Walker, Fayette State University

 

“The textbook does a fine job of emphasizing research-based best practices and an integrated approach to language arts instruction. This text provides practical teaching ideas that students can read today and put to use tomorrow.”

            -Adriana L. Medina, University of Miami

 

“It is well organized and has a greater emphasis on writing, writing across the curriculum, ELL, and technology than any other language arts text I’ve seen recently. I think the author has made a tremendous effort to make the connection between language arts and other areas of curriculum explicit and natural.”

            - Wanda L. Calvert, Clemson University
