Abstract

An insightful and informative guide for many of the situations and issues high school English Language Arts teachers face every day.

From four veteran teacher educators, On the Case in the English Language Arts Classroom offers twenty case narratives as well as a format for discussion, professional resources that can inform decisions, and a guide to constructing new case narratives that can expand the possibilities for developing powerful problem-solving strategies.

Being a high school English teacher is both rewarding and difficult. Although teacher education programs try to be thorough, they can’t prepare preservice teachers for every situation that might arise. For instance:

  • How can an ELA teacher work with learners who have suffered significant trauma?
  • How can a well-prepared literature instructor teach high school students the basics of reading?
  • Should a teacher shy away from classroom conversations because they can become “too political”?
  • How does a teacher contend with a crushing workload?

On the Case in the English Language Arts Classroom provides teachers at any point in their career the opportunity to analyze potential situations and problems that commonly confront teachers through case studies that prompt extensive, stimulating discussion and invite written responses.
