In the Sixth Edition, with new and greatly expanded chapters, Carole Cox provides an in-depth look at a student-centered, standards-based, integrated approach to teaching language arts with a heavy emphasis on English Language Learners (ELL's) and strong coverage of assessment and differentiated instruction throughout the text in order to prepare students to work within today's multilingual, multi-ability classrooms.
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 stays on the cutting edge with new snapshots of real teachers that bring the content to life for students, and fresh, thought-provoking lesson plans and teaching ideas.
In an eloquent and well-researched text that students and teachers find empowering, Carole Cox uses a strong theoretical base that covers content in a broad and in-depth manner and in a very engaging writing style.
