Standards for the English Language Arts
What should English language arts students know and be able to do? Designed to prepare all K–12 students for the increasing literacy demands of today and tomorrow, Standards for the English Language Arts presents a vision of literacy education that encompasses the use of print, oral, and visual language and addresses six interrelated English language arts: reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and visually representing. The book examines the rationale for standard-setting and provides real-life classroom vignettes to illustrate standards in practice. Required reading for ELA professionals at all levels.
