For courses in Secondary English Methods.This text offers a comprehensive and up-to-date view of teaching secondary English based on sound research and classroom practice. The third edition reaffirms the value of a holistic, integrated approach to teaching English language arts. While separating the language arts into separate chapters, the strands are reconnected in every chapter. A separate chapter is devoted to grammar, giving this component focused attention. Materials and instructional strategies for students with increased diversity and needs are offered in greater detail. Problem-solving skills and reflective applications, integrated into chapters as simulations, are included to heighten the reflective skills of novice and experienced teachers.show more
