Description

Smagorinsky offers five detailed studies of teachers and students in the classroom to portray and elaborate on the standards for the English language arts. Each chapter-long narrative follows a classroom community through a unit of study geared to that community's unique social and cultural context -- with its own distinct set of values and with learners who bring these values to class. Smagorinsky thus reveals the "situatedness" of both teaching and learning and demonstrates that they are not generic, homogeneous activities that transcend time, space, and culture. This book helps illustrate how every classroom teacher can adapt standards into a learner-centered pedagogy that capitalizes on students' strengths.
