As the new English Language Arts Common Core State Standards take hold across the United States, the need grows to for pre‐service and in‐service teachers to be ready to develop curriculum and instruction that addresses their requirements. This timely, thoughtful, and comprehensive text directly meets this need. The literacy practices and critical engagement curriculum framework for 6‐12 English language arts education it sets forth explains and illustrates how the Standards’ highest and best intentions for student success can be implemented from a critical, culturally relevant perspective that is firmly grounded in current literacy learning theory and research.
The first 6‐12 English language arts methods text to be aligned with the Standards, this text also addresses their limitations — formalist assumptions about literacy learning, limited attention to media/digital literacies, lack of attention to critical literacies, and developmental assumptions about linking standards and text complexity to specific grade levels — and shows how these limitations can be surpassed through adoption of a literacy practices/critical engagement curriculum framework. Specific examples of teachers using this approach to interpreting and translating the Standards bring it to life.
