Abstract:

For a decade and over two editions, the specific, practical, and experience-honed advice of The English Teacher's Companion has supported great teaching and cemented Jim Burke's reputation as a teacher's teacher. Now the third edition brings the book fully up to date, making it not only a useful resource, but an essential part of any English teacher's library. The third edition of The English Teacher's Companion again delivers vital information on the teaching of English, including foundational advice for teaching literature; nurturing reading, writing, and thinking skills; and organizing for success. But it also responds to needs that Jim has heard in speaking engagements and professional development workshops across the country. Teachers and teacher educators asked for: the latest research on literacy more information about national standards ways to consider gender in instruction advice for teaching Advanced Placement classes ideas for teaching media literacy and incorporating technology effectively into instruction even more resources for mentoring new teachers analysis of how trends in society, culture, and politics impact teachers and their classrooms. And Jim delivers. He has revamped his introductory chapters on literacy learning to include up-to-the-minute thinking from the field, and he has incorporated lists of key standards and helpful suggestions for reaching them. His practical strategies turn recent findings on literacy and gender into well-designed, research-based instruction, and his ideas help you meet the very different needs of AP students by understanding their goals and providing them with appropriate challenges. Best of all, new teachers will find a wealth of the latest information for getting a teaching job, using the Internet to locate helpful resources, negotiating the impact of politics and culture in the workplace, and helpful thoughts on the reciprocal nature of mentoring and being mentored. There's even a companion website (books.heinemann.com/englishteacherscompanion) with still more to support your success and your students'. The world of English teaching changes every day, and The English Teacher's Companion has changed with it. Read the third edition, and find out why it continues to make a powerful and lasting impact on English teachers everywhere.
