    This eBook+ version includes the following enhancements: interactive features and links to the up-to-date Companion Website, with more strategies and examples of practice and student work. This book’s unique and engaging voice, supported by its many resources, will help future and in-service teachers bring the language arts to life in their own classrooms.

    This book helps readers envision their future classrooms, including the role technology will play, as they prepare to be successful teachers. Comprehensively updated, the second edition addresses new demands on teaching in traditional and virtual ELA classrooms, and the new ways technology facilitates effective instructional practices. Organized around the receptive language arts—the way learners receive information—and the expressive language arts—the way leaners express ideas—chapters cover all aspects of language arts instruction, including new information on planning and assessment; teaching reading and writing fundamentals; supporting ELLs, dyslexic, and dysgraphic learners; using digital tools; and more. In every chapter, readers can explore a rich array of teaching tools and experiences, which allow readers to learn from real-world classrooms.
