Paperback
Described by reviewers as one of the most comprehensive and complete texts to be published in the field in years, Teaching the Language Arts provides readers with a truly balanced approach to the teaching of language arts with an emphasis on the arts themselves. Written with the belief that all children and teachers possess creative potential, the author masterfully integrates essential elements of phonics instruction with critical principles of literature-based instruction, namely literature, comprehension, writing, and oral language. Cramer's engaging writing style leaves readers feeling as though they are in a conversation with the author and clearly answers the question, How can we teach Language Arts well?
