This book brings the vision of a student-centered classroom to life through clear illustrations of guiding principles, balanced with examples of real teachers in real classrooms with real children, many of whom are English learners. Engaging, readable, and practical, Teaching Language Arts is built on a strong theoretical and research base, and illustrated and clarified with real-life examples of children and teachers from today’s diverse classrooms. Written to reflect cutting-edge theory, new research, the latest policies, the new Common Core State Standards, and best practices in the rapidly changing world of language arts instruction, the book uses a number of practical aids to bring the concepts alive, among them the unique, highly popular “Snapshots” of real teachers and students, which demonstrate the many skills required to become an effective teacher in today’s challenging and diverse classrooms.

Author Biography

Carole Cox, Ph.D., teaches at California State University, Long Beach, where she was named the Outstanding Professor in 2001. She received her B.A. from UCLA with a double major in French and Political Science, and an elementary teaching credential. She has taught elementary school in Los Angeles, California, and Madison, Wisconsin, and received her Ph.D. in Education at the University of Minnesota. At Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, and California State University, Long Beach, Carole has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in language arts, reading, and children’s literature, and published articles, book chapters, and other books with Pearson including Engaging English Learners: Exploring Literature, Developing Literacy, and Differentiating Instruction (Cox & Boyd-Batstone, 2009). Professor Cox’s research has focused on children’s stance toward film and literature from a reader-response perspective, specifically Louise Rosenblatt’s transactional model of the reading process.
