This brief guide helps secondary English language arts teachers establish student-centered, literature focused, and writing-enriched classrooms. It presents a learning theory that explains what teaching strategies to use, why to use them, and how they promote literacy. Chapters discuss empathy and cultural awareness, collaboration, wall text and text tours, guided reading, guided writing, model texts, and pre-telling and retelling. Meeks teaches at Utah State University; Austin at Mountain Crest High School. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
