Description

This book offers teachers a rich language studies curriculum they can adapt to the needs of their elementary and middle school students, providing opportunities to talk, write, read, and think about language in ways that increase their self-confidence in their ability to use language flexibly and appropriately. Through critical-moment teaching, strategy lessons, and theme cycles on language and linguistics, language and literature, and language as power, teachers and students can explore the roles that language plays in society, document both personal and social issues of language use, and discover that language study can be both enlightening and exciting. In the process, students come to value their own intuitive knowledge about language, as well as the potential of language to influence their lives and the lives of others.
