Continuously evolving to address the needs of today's students, THE HODGES HARBRACE HANDBOOK, 19th Edition, guides student writers in developing their understanding of the rhetorical situation. This understanding enables even those students with minimal experience or confidence in their writing to learn to write more effectively--to choose the most pertinent information, arrange it well, and use the most appropriate language when writing for an audience. This grammar-first handbook provides comprehensive coverage of grammar, style, punctuation, mechanics, writing, and research--all presented in the context of rhetorical concerns, including the writer, reader, message, context, and purpose. Like all of its predecessors, the nineteenth edition provides both teachers and students the ease of reference and attention to detail that have made the HARBRACE handbooks THE standard of reliability since 1941. This edition has been updated to reflect guidelines from the 2016 MLA HANDBOOK, Eighth Edition.

This volume details the development and initial evaluation of a supplemental literacy course intended to support at-risk high school students in the US. Developed using design based research (DBR), the course combines argument writing and knowledge building literacy routines to support academic literacy development. Acknowledging the demand for US students to meet academic literacy standards that emphasize explanatory and argumentative writing, the text foregrounds knowledge building as key to effective writing development. Chapters trace the development and implementation of course literacy routines designed using DBR and use whole-class and individual case studies to demonstrate how informational reading, discussion, and argument writing become an activity system to support literacy development. Ultimately, the text has important implications for literacy course design, and the use of knowledge building analysis and DBR in research. The text will benefit researchers, academics, and educators in higher education with an interest in academic literacy education, writing and composition, and secondary education more broadly. Those specifically interested in methodologies relating to classroom teaching and learning as well as argumentation and argument writing will also benefit from this book.

"Everyday Arguments" combines brief argument rhetoric with an anthology of illustrative readings drawn from arguments of everyday life. The anthology of readings is closely tied to the principles and practices introduced in the rhetoric section. The overarching philosophy of the reading selections (and of the book as a whole) is that written argument -- in all its variety -- is the most common form of writing and that much can be learned about its practice from the texts we encounter on a daily basis. Ideal for individuals interested in learning to develop argumentative and persuasive writing skills.

California teachers: you’re going to love this! Here at last is that single teaching resource for making the critical link between our ELD Standards and the CCSS ELA Standards. Standard by standard, you’ll quickly discover how to integrate language development into your day-to-day content instruction, armed with an insider’s understanding of how best to support our many English learners. Modeled after Jim Burke’s Common Core series, this Grades 6-8 volume of The California ELD Standards Companion is every bit “that version of the standards you wish you had” because it’s just so easy to digest and apply. It’s all here: Horizontal and vertical views reveal how each ELD Standard changes and progresses grade by grade and proficiency level by proficiency level. What the Student Does Sections, also scannable by grade and proficiency level, unpack in student-friendly language what meeting a standard looks like in practice. CCSS ELA Standards are displayed side by side with California’s ELD Standards so you can appreciate the purposeful alignment between the two as the basis for remodeling instructional practice. What the Teacher Does Sections provide specific instructional guidance by grade band, including student prompts and tips for differentiation across proficiency level. A dedicated vocabulary section offers a quick-reference glossary of key words and phrases as they are used within each ELD Standard. Each section concludes with a vignette from the California ELA/ELD Framework to illustrate exemplary standards-based instruction. Thanks to the ELD Standards, we are now free to teach our ELs the way we knew best all along: language and content taught hand in hand across the school day. Lean on Ivannia Soto and Linda Carstens’ California ELD Standards Companion as your one-stop guide for delivering that excellent education our ELs so deeply deserve.

This book describes four ‘layers’ or stages of education – Mythic, Romantic, Philosophic and Ironic and shows how children at each stage most effectively learn, and how they can be helped towards educational maturity. While drawing on a wide range of philosophical and psychological literature, this new theory is primarily constructed from close observation of children in their common and intense imaginative engagements, and in everyday educational practice.
