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.
