Written in a conversational style that easily engages readers, this topical book focuses on the design of integrated instructional units that include goals, materials, assessments, daily lessons, and activities. Unit designs are presented in the context of broader issues in which the settings of teaching affect the way people learn to think about teaching English.

Chapter topics cover the basics of unit design, what students know and what schools assess, setting and assessing unit goals, setting up the classroom, how ways of talking affect ways of learning, multimedia composing with a big tool kit, rethinking the curriculum from a multicultural perspective, rethinking character education, rethinking standards for teaching English, and theory in practice.

For English and Language Arts teachers in secondary schools.
