Standardized tests demand Standard English, but secondary students (grades 6-12) come to school speaking a variety of dialects and languages, thus creating a conflict between students’ language of nurture and the expectations of school. The purpose of this text is twofold: to explain and illustrate how language varieties function in the classroom and in students’ lives and to detail linguistically informed instructional strategies. Through anecdotes from the classroom, lesson plans, and accessible narrative, it introduces theory and clearly builds the bridge to daily classroom practices that respect students’ language varieties and use those varieties as strengths upon which secondary English teachers can build. The book explains how to teach about language variations and ideologies in the classroom; uses typically taught texts as models for exploring how power, society, and identity interact with language, literature, and students’ lives; connects the Common Core State Standards to the concepts presented; and offers strategies to teach the sense and structure of Standard English and other language variations, so that all students may add Standard English to their linguistic toolboxes.

A breakthrough in teaching the language arts, this new text integrates essential elements of phonics instruction with critical principles of literature-based instruction, and an emphasis on the arts resulting in a refreshing and balanced approach to language arts. Ron Cramer has been selected by The International Reading Association for the 2004 Outstanding Teacher Educator in Reading. Written with the belief that all children and teachers possess creative potential, respected author, Ron Cramer masterfully integrates phonics instruction with critical principles of literature-based instruction, namely literature, comprehension, writing, and oral language. Created especially for those students who want hands-on practical applications to take into the classroom, this text will be a “keeper” as it includes more activities than any other text that culminate in a compendium of activities—The Blue Pages—at the end of the book. In sum, Cramer's engaging writing style leaves readers feeling as though they “are in conversation with the author” and clearly answers the question, “How can we teach Language Arts well?” Lastly, this text adds new dimension by providing an important but often neglected emphasis on the arts.
