Description : This text for pre-service and in-service English education courses presents current methods of teaching literature to middle and high school students. The methods are based on social-constructivist/socio-cultural theories of literacy learning, and incorporate research on literary response conducted by the authors. Teaching Literature to Adolescents – a totally new text that draws on ideas from the best selling textbook, Teaching Literature in the Secondary School, by Beach and Marshall – reflects and builds on recent key developments in theory and practice in the field, including: the importance of providing students with a range of critical lenses for analyzing texts and interrogating the beliefs, attitudes, and ideological perspectives encountered in literature; organization of the literature curriculum around topics, themes, or issues; infusion of multicultural literature and emphasis on how writers portray race, class, and gender differences; use of drama as a tool for enhancing understanding of texts; employment of a range of different ways to write about literature; integration of critical analysis of film and media texts with the study of literature; blending of quality young adult literature into the curriculum; and attention to students who have difficulty succeeding in literature classes due to reading difficulties, disparities between school and home cultures, attitudes toward school/English, or lack of engagement with assigned texts or response activities. The interactive Web site contains recommended readings, resources, and activities; links to Web sites and PowerPoint presentations; and opportunities for readers to contribute teaching units to the Web site databases. Instructors and students in middle and high school English methods courses will appreciate the clear, engaging, useful integration of theory, methods, and pedagogical features offered in this text.

Description : Taking a close look at the forces that affect English education in schools—at the ways literature, cognitive science, the privileging of the STEM disciplines, and current educational policies are connected—this timely book counters with a strong argument for the importance of continuing to teach literature in middle and secondary classrooms. The case is made through critical examination of the ongoing "culture wars" between the humanities and the sciences, recent research in cognitive literary studies demonstrating the power of narrative reading, and an analysis of educational trends that have marginalized literature teaching in the U.S., including standards-based and scripted curricula. The book is distinctive in presenting both a synthesis of arguments for literary study in the middle and high school and sample lesson plans from practicing teachers exemplifying how literature can positively influence adolescents’ intellectual, emotional, and social selves.

Description : Presenting findings from a wide-ranging study, this book considers the present state of literature teaching in American middle and secondary schools. Probing both context and the instructional approaches, the book shows a discipline staffed by teachers better educated than their predecessors but carrying heavy class loads and isolated from current thinking in literary criticism and pedagogy. The book is based on a series of four interrelated studies: (1) a series of case studies of English programs with local reputations for excellence; (2) a study of book-length works that are required reading for high school students as well as the book-length texts required in public schools, grades 7-12, and in Catholic and independent schools, grades 9-12; (3) a survey of content and approaches in nationally representative samples of English programs in public, Catholic, and independent schools, plus schools whose students consistently win National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Achievement Awards in Writing; and (4) analyses of the selections and teaching suggestions offered in widely used anthologies. Chapters of the book are: Introduction; Studying the Teaching of Literature; Conditions for the Teaching of Literature; The Curriculum as a Whole; Selections Chosen for Study; Selections Available in Literature Anthologies; Classroom Literature Instruction; Instructional Materials in Literature Anthologies; Writing and Literature; The School Library and Students' Reading; and Conclusion. A description of methods and procedures for the four studies, and a list of the most frequently anthologized selections by genre are attached. (Contains 87 references and 90 tables/figures.) (RS).

Each chapter explains the background to current debates about teaching the subject and provides tasks, teaching ideas, and further reading to explore issues and ideas in relation to school experience.

Learning to Teach English in the Secondary Schooloffers principles and practical examples of teaching and learning in the context of the end of the twentieth century when new notions of literacy compete with the demands of national assessment.

Description : Introducing a new framework for teaching and learning literature in secondary schools, this book presents Dialogic Literary Argumentation as an inquiry-based approach to engage students in communicating and exploring ideas about literature. As a process of discovery, Dialogic Literary Argumentation facilitates conversation—"arguing-to-learn"—as a method to support students’ diverse perspectives and engagement with one another in order to develop individual and collective understandings of literature and their place in the world. Covering both the theoretical foundation and application of this method, this book demonstrates how to apply Dialogic Literary Argumentation to teach literature in a way that foregrounds dialogue, learning through inquiry, diverse views, listening to others, and engagement with our communities. Ideal for preservice teachers in literacy methods courses and practicing teachers, it features real-world cases, discussions of the principles presented, resource lists, and conversation starters for professional learning communities, professional development, and teacher education.

Description : Literature in Language Teaching is a proposal to use literature as a resource for English language teaching in Ugandan secondary schools. It originates from my experience as a student, teacher of English and Literature in Ugandan secondary schools, and as a teacher trainer. The study examines the historical and geographical background of Uganda, and the educational problems with emphasis on the teaching of English language. This includes: the educational system, language policy, profiles of English language teachers, the problems of teaching English language, literature on the school curriculum and in integrated English course books, and the problems of teaching literature. It gives the background of literature in education and its importance in ELT. It also discusses different approaches and methodologies of teaching literature as a subject and as a resource for English language teaching and provides useful criteria for selecting literary materials for the language classroom. The study further discusses opinions of secondary school students, teachers, and trainee teachers on using literature as a resource for English language teaching and their experiences.

Description : Pre-service and new teachers alike will appreciate this comprehensive, realistic view of what it is like to teach English language arts in grades 6 through 12. Through thoughtful integration of practical approaches to both curriculum and instruction, the book addresses the questions and concerns that those new to the profession encounter. The book stresses the constructivist approach and emphasizes reflective practice, and it asks readers to interact with the ideas presented-to affirm, question, and challenge those ideas. Included are numerous actual sample lessons plus classroom ideas with reflective questions that show readers how theory and research relate to practice. New Internet sources, summative graphic organizers of the material, and a flexible approach make this an ideal teaching tool for teachers of middle and secondary school students. Here's what makes this new fifth edition unique: Internet sources and the end of some chapters make the material relevant and give students additional resources for reflection. Reflective questions appear when appropriate in each chapter, prompting students to reflect on and absorb key content. Web sites particularly useful for English teachers are included. New chapter on media literacy (Chapter 9). Chapter 4, Oral Language, continues to build on the strong presentation of the previous edition, but now examines the use of improvisation. Chapter 12, Your Starting Role: Student Teaching and Beyond, takes readers through student teaching experiences, complete with actual material from former student teachers-emails, student teaching logs, and more. Included are scenarios and experiences that give readers opportunities to explore problems they might face in the classroom. Additions to the literature chapters include strategies for conducting a good class discussion on literature, criteria for selecting "good" books for adolescent readers, student units, Web sites for teachers, and reflection activities. These chapters also emphasize multicultural literature and young adult literature, without neglecting the classics.

Description : This is the third in an important series of books for teachers of English. The focus in this book, aimed at secondary schools, is on preparing teachers for the new TOC-oriented English syllabus. All three language dimensions - KNOWLEDGE, INTERPERSONAL, EXPERIENCE - are addressed. In particular, the use of appropriate techniques and materials is demonstrated for those teachers unfamiliar with the EXPERIENCE dimension. The book demonstrates how texts, techniques and tasks used in secondary classrooms can be MOTIVATING, MEANINGFUL AND MEMORABLE. All the ideas in the book have been tried out by local teachers and shown to work. This book is not just for teachers of literature. It is for those who teach the 100,000 school-leavers taking English language examinations every year.

Description : This book comprises reflections by experienced scholar teachers on the principles and practice of higher education English teaching. In approaching the subject from different angles it aims to spark insights and to foster imaginative teaching. In the era of audit, and the Teaching Excellence Framework it invites teachers to return to the sources of their own teaching knowledge. The shift from a student-centred to a research-centred paradigm has particular implications for a discipline which prides itself on its teaching, and has always had teaching and dialogue at its heart. One which also talks across the tertiary / secondary border to the cognate (though different) subject called ‘English’ in school. The argument which informs this book, and which is developed in the individual chapters, is that the future of the subject relies not alone upon fostering communities of ‘research excellence’, but on re-awakening and reviving its pedagogic traditions.

Description : This essential guide offers a fresh approach to integrating grammar effectively into the classroom as a vital strand of English that both enlivens and enriches students' understanding of literature. It aims to demystify grammar and empower teachers with the knowledge, inspiration and practical ideas to confidently teach grammar to students at any stage of their secondary education. The authors demonstrate that routinely weaving grammar into lessons and the study of literature, rather than teaching it as an abstract set of rules, enables students to see grammar in a more flexible, enjoyable and exciting way. Each chapter clearly defines complex terminology and provides an essential overview of relevant subject knowledge. With multiple examples of textual analysis and a variety of adaptable lesson plans for popular Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 texts, the book shows how grammatical requirements can be taught in a lively, literature-based manner, developing students' understanding and improving the quality of their creative and academic writing. Taught like this, grammar becomes a decoding tool: a key to unlocking deeper meaning within texts that enriches the reading experience. Considering a wide range of texts, Teaching Grammar through Literature thoroughly works through core grammatical concepts such as: sentences and sentence clauses nouns verbs determiners punctuation extension vocabulary. This book is a source of fresh and exciting ideas for all practising secondary school English teachers. It will revolutionalise teaching and enrich students' understanding of literature and the grammatical theory within.

Description : Literary Praxis: A Conversational Inquiry into the Teaching of Literature explores the teaching of literature in secondary schools. It does this from the vantage point of educators in a range of settings around the world, as they engage in dialogue with one another in order to capture the nature of their professional commitment, the knowledge they bring to their work as literature teachers, and the challenges of their professional practice as they interact with their students. The core of the book comprises accounts of their day-to-day teaching by Dutch and Australian educators. These teachers do more than capture the immediacy of the here-and-now of their classrooms; they attempt to understand those classrooms relationally, exploring the ways in which their professional practice is mediated by government policies, national literary traditions and existing traditions of curriculum and pedagogy. They thereby enact a form of literary ‘praxis’ that grapples with major ideological issues, most notably the impact of standards-based reforms on their work. Educators from other countries then comment on the cases written by the Dutch and Australian teachers, thus taking the concept of ‘praxis’ to a new level, as part of a comparative inquiry that acknowledges the richly specific character of the cases and resists viewing teaching around the world as though it lends itself unproblematically to the same standards of measurement (as in the fetish made of PISA). They step back from a judgmental stance, and try to understand what it means to teach literature in other educational settings than their own. The essays in this collection show the complexities of literature teaching as a form of professional praxis, exploring the intensely reflexive learning in which teachers engage, as they induct their students into reading literary texts, and reflect on the socio-cultural contexts of their work.
