Now in its third edition, the Handbook of Research on Teaching the English Language Arts—sponsored by the International Reading Association and the National Council of Teachers of English—offers an integrated perspective on the teaching of the English language arts and a comprehensive overview of research in the field. Prominent scholars, researchers, and professional leaders
Reflecting important recent developments in the field, the Third Edition is restructured, updated, and includes many new contributors. More emphasis is given in this edition to the learner, multiple texts, learning, and sharing one’s knowledge. A Companion Website, new for this edition, provides PowerPoint® slides highlighting the main points of each chapter.
"The range of topics is expansive and inclusive, from research studies on spelling to the use of technology in classrooms. This essential resource can be used as an encyclopedic reference for the English-language arts in general or for those interested in synthesis research in particular. The bibliographic references for each chapter are in themselves a rich resource for those seeking a more in-depth study of a specific topic. Highly recommended for practitioners at all school levels, researchers, policy makers, and graduate and undergraduate students in education."—CHOICE
"This text is an important resource that should be in the professional library of every member of the literacy community, especially researchers, techer educators curriculum coordinators, instructional leaders, and graduate students."—Journal of Literacy Research
