Summary

The third edition of this popular text again takes a balanced, comprehensive approach to teaching English--one that creates a bridge between theory/background and practices that reflect today's diverse, challenging high school classrooms. This text has been praised for its unique components: discussion of "four stages" of reading texts and "three phases" of teaching texts; plus the close attention it pays to poetry, nonfiction, media, and writing. The authors' many years of experience teaching English are obvious throughout the material, but nowhere more so than in their straightforward presentation of organization and planning for instruction and their firm stand on teaching grammar.
