Emphasizing student inquiry and writing, this rich collection offers teachers ready-to-use classroom resources with a sound basis in best practice. Student engagement with community becomes the centerpiece of the book, an engagement that takes place across disciplines through projects involving history, environment, culture, and more. These lively, classroom-tested lessons are easily adapted to different teaching levels and settings. The book, co-published with National Council of Teachers of English, also effectively addresses curricular guidelines specific to local, regional and state settings, as well as to national standards.
