English Language Arts : A Critical Introduction, Paperback Book


English Language Arts offers both undergraduates and starting-graduate students in education an introduction to the connections that exist between language arts and a critical orientation to education. Because language influences all aspects of education, English teachers have a unique responsibility to create opportunities for learners to cultivate literacy practices that will empower them to reach their potential.

Applying critical and theoretical perspectives to teaching English language arts, this primer considers how meanings are made in intersecting spaces of learners, teachers, and texts.

Julie Gorlewski shows future and current teachers how critical English language arts education can be put into practice with concrete strategies and examples in both formal and informal educational settings.

With opportunities for readers to engage in deeper discussion through suggested activities, English Language Arts' pedagogical features include:Model Classroom ScenariosExtension QuestionsGlossary of Key Terms
