BOOK EXCERPT:

A new companion for every English teacher "Why have I written an entirely new English Teacher's Companion? Because to offer you anything less would suggest I had not grown, changed, or evolved these past fifteen years. I am not the same teacher I was when I wrote the first edition." -Jim Burke The fourth edition of English Teacher's Companion is 100 percent new. Jim Burke has rewritten it to model methods for reaching a new generation of students-when all the ground rules for teaching are changing. A teacher's teacher and a recognized leader in English/language arts education, Jim understands the need for instructional methods that connect the why of teaching to the how. "This edition makes the research behind my practice more explicit," he writes. "It is also anchored in the Common Core State Standards, because I am still teaching every day-so these standards are my standards too." Weaving in ideas for working with ELLs, struggling readers, and technology, English Teacher's Companion, Fourth Edition: looks comprehensively at the research and reality of our profession, our students, and our content provides practical and thoughtful methods for meeting standards in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language study makes assessment a priority, not only to find out what students know but to help practitioners improve. "I have taught English for nearly 25 years, and I love it," writes Jim Burke. Never has this love been more apparent than in the numerous lessons and teaching moves he includes as well as in the many examples of his own classroom language. Trust the fourth edition of English Teacher's Companion, and bring the passion, power, and practicality of one of America's best teachers to your classroom.

"This research-based book is intended as a 'companion' or reference to enhance pre-service and practising teachers' knowledge about how literature is created. Offering practical insights, it supports teachers' understanding of the writer's craft related to the quality literary texts they read with their students. While the major emphasis is on the Literature Strand and its sub strands, the book takes the three strands of the Australian Curriculum: English as a starting point for the book's content and offers explanations, interpretations and examples for each strand."--Publisher.

The new edition of this bestselling text employs standard grammatical terminology, but it also uses terms which allow for a more functional interpretation. Aligned with the new Australian Curriculum: English, this edition is organised around the main functions that language plays in our lives: interacting with others, structuring coherent texts and expressing and developing ideas. Another major difference is that the content now extends into secondary schooling, dealing with the language challenges faced by older students.
