✏Children s Literature and Learner Empowerment Book Summary : Children's literature can be a powerful way to encourage and empower EFL students but is less commonly used in the classroom than adult literature. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to children's and young adult literature in EFL teaching. It demonstrates the complexity of children's literature and how it can encourage an active community of second language readers: with multilayered picturebooks, fairy tales, graphic novels and radical young adult fiction. It examines the opportunities of children's literature in EFL teacher education, including: the intertexuality of children's literature as a gate-opener for canonised adult literature; the rich patterning of children's literature supporting Creative Writing; the potential of interactive drama projects. Close readings of texts at the centre of contemporary literary scholarship, yet largely unknown in the EFL world, provide an invaluable guide for teacher educators and student teachers, including works by David Almond, Anthony Browne, Philip Pullman and J.K.Rowling. Introducing a range of genres and their significance for EFL teaching, this study makes an important new approach accessible for EFL teachers, student teachers and teacher educators.

✏Student centered Language Arts K 12 Book Summary : Student-Centered Language Arts, K-12 is the fourth edition of a seminal text, first published in 1968. It is at once a textbook for college methods courses and a resource book for curriculum supervisors, language arts and reading coordinators, and above all, classroom teachers at all levels. It is arguably the most comprehensive, usefully detailed, and original textbook/resource book on English education. The authors have significantly revised this edition to take account of current trends. They have dropped much of the rationale and theory, because the essentials of the approach they advocate no longer need justification-having been adopted in the last decade under such rubrics as whole language, reading in the content areas, writing across the curriculum, using language to learn, integrating the language arts, replacing basal readers with children's literature, cooperative learning and collaborative learning, process writing and process reading, writing response groups, peer editing, portfolio assessment, teacher-student conferencing, student empowerment, active learning, and critical thinking. Increasingly, verbal learning is allied to nonverbal media and arts that compete with and complement language, and all learning is placed in a social context. The book is the centerpiece of life work devoted to curricular innovation and constitutes a truly original approach to the nature of discourse. It is cross-referenced to Moffett's equally original collection of anthologies that illustrate with both professional and student writing the reading, writing, talking, dramatizing repertories it stakes out - and to Moffett's other works that build on and extendStudent-Centered Language Arts, K-12.
