A new companion for every English teacher"Why have I written an entirely new English Teacher's Companion?

I am not the same teacher I was when I wrote the first edition."-Jim BurkeThe fourth edition of English Teacher's Companionis 100 percent new. Jim Burke has rewritten it to model methods for reaching a new generation of students-when all the ground rules for teaching are changing.A teacher's teacher and a recognized leader in English/language arts education, Jim understands the need for instructional methods that connect the why of teaching to the how. "This edition makes the research behind my practice more explicit," he writes. "It is also anchored in the Common Core State Standards, because I am still teaching every day-so these standards are my standards too."Weaving in ideas for working with ELLs, struggling readers, and technology, The English Teacher's Companion, Fourth Edition: looks comprehensively at the research and reality of our profession, our students, and our contentprovides practical and thoughtful methods for meeting standards in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language studymakes assessment a priority, not only to find out what students know but to help practitioners improve."I have taught English for nearly 25 years, and I love it," writes Jim Burke. Never has this love been more apparent than in the numerous lessons and teaching moves he includes as well as in the many examples of his own classroom language. Trust the fourth edition of The English Teacher's Companion, and bring the passion, power, and practicality of one of America's best teachers to your classroom.

He seeks these answers daily through his work in his own classroom at Burlingame High School in California where he still teaches after twenty years. Facing the same constraints and challenges as every other teacher, Jim shares his creative solutions in bestselling professional titles with Heinemann such as Reading Reminders and Writing Reminders as well as through Heinemann Professional Development Services.

In addition, he is a senior author on the Holt McDougal Harcourt Literature series. Jim has received numerous awards, including the NCTE Intellectual Freedom Award, the NCTE Conference on English Leadership Award, and the California Reading Association Hall of Fame Award. He served on the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Committee on Adolescence and Young Adulthood English Language Arts Standards.
