Description: As the new English Language Arts Common Core State Standards take hold across the United States, the need grows for pre-service and in-service teachers to be ready to develop curriculum and instruction that addresses their requirements. This timely, thoughtful, and comprehensive text directly meets this need. It delineates a literacy practices and critical engagement curriculum framework for 6-12 English language arts education that explains and illustrates how the Standardsâ highest and best intentions for student success can be implemented from a critical, culturally relevant perspective that is firmly grounded in current literacy learning theory and research.The first 6-12 English language arts methods text to be aligned with the Standards, this book also addresses their limitations â formalist assumptions about literacy learning, limited attention to media/digital literacies, lack of attention to critical literacies, and questionable assumptions about linking standards and text complexity to specific grade levels. Specific examples of teachers using the literacy practices/critical engagement curriculum framework in their classrooms shows how these limitations can be surpassed.Featuresâ¢ Moves the CCSS framework into a view that literacy is a contextualized, social practiceâ¢ Challenges simplistic models that homogenize adolescent learners â¢ Adds the important element of critical literacy to English language arts classroomsâ¢ Provides specific examples of teachers in action implementing these practicesâ¢ Interactive Companion Website with student and instructor resources.
