Whatever Happened to Language Arts? …It’s Alive and Well and Part of Successful Literacy Classrooms Everywhere
This inspiring book shows teachers how reading and writing instruction has evolved – where we were, where we are and where we can go in literacy learning. It looks at literacy techniques that have ranged over the years from group reading to language experience to whole language to synthetic phonics to balanced literacy to reading and writing workshops.
Each chapter begins with a glimpse into a modern classroom where a remarkable teacher is engaged in a significant literacy event that inspires and motivates students. The book features a dozen vignettes of these outstanding teachers in action and reflects on what has happened in the past that informed their successful classroom practice. David Booth, an extraordinary educator, then goes on to shares his insights into the way forward; the changes in literacy education that will merge into education programs for the next generation of the children.
Whatever Happened to Language Arts? Presents the author’s best literacy strategies from almost half a century of teaching and enriches them with practical ideas and techniques that teachers can use. It offers teachers innovative ways to help students develop as competent readers and writers in our wireless world.
