"These books will support teachers in their understanding of designing process-based instruction and give them both useful lesson plans and a process for designing instruction on their own that follows the design principles." -Peter Smagorinsky, Larry Johannessen, Elizabeth Kahn, and Thomas McCann The Dynamics of Writing Instruction series helps middle and high school teachers teach writing using a structured process approach. Teachers may spread these books throughout a multiyear English language arts program, use all six books to constitute a yearlong writing course, or repeat modified sequences from one book at sequential grade levels so students deal with that particular genre at increasing degrees of complexity. Each book in the series includes classroom-tested activities, detailed lesson sequences, and supporting handouts. The instruction is detailed enough to use as a daily plan but general enough that teachers can modify it to accommodate their own curriculum and the specific needs of their students. The instructional activities in each book are tailored to a specific kind of writing: argument, essays that define, comparison/contrast essays, personal narratives, research reports, and fictional narratives. This six book series will show teachers how to: introduce issues, dilemmas, and scenarios that capture students' interest and invoke the critical and creative thinking necessary to write powerfully and effectively design and orchestrate activities within an interactive and collaborative environment move students through increasingly challenging activities designed to help them become independent writers.

Short enough to be synoptic, yet long enough to be usefully detailed, A Short History of Writing Instruction is the ideal text for undergraduate courses and graduate seminars in rhetoric and composition. It preserves the legacy of writing instruction from antiquity to contemporary times with a unique focus on the material, educational, and institutional context of the Western rhetorical tradition. Its longitudinal approach enables students to track the recurrence over time of not only specific teaching methods, but also major issues such as social purpose, writing as power, the effect of technologies, the rise of vernaculars, and writing as a force for democratization. The collection is rich in scholarship and critical perspectives, which is made accessible through the robust list of pedagogical tools included, such as the Key Concepts listed at the beginning of each chapter, and the Glossary of Key Terms and Bibliography for Further Study provided at the end of the text. Further additions include increased attention to orthography, or the physical aspects of the writing process, new material on high school instruction, sections on writing in the electronic age, and increased coverage of women rhetoricians and writing instruction of women. A new chapter on writing instruction in Late Medieval Europe was also added to augment coverage of the Middle Ages, fill the gap in students' knowledge of the period, and present instructional methods that can be easily reproduced in the modern classroom.

Teaching English by Design has become a classic resource for preservice teachers as well as in-service teachers who consider it their go-to guide to creating lessons and units organized around key concepts. In the Second Edition, Peter Smagorinsky updates the content for today's teachers with discussions of New Literacies, using technology in the classroom, LGBTQ issues, and an expansive new chapter on preparing for Beginning Teacher Performance Assessments. He also brings in a fresh new voice and outlook from Darren Rhym, a high school teacher in rural Georgia. Following a new chapter on "Teaching Stressed Students Under Stressful Circumstances," Peter and Darren collaborated to create a unit on Power and Race. Designed to help students develop agency in improving their lives and those of the people in their communities, this sample unit provides a practical framework for addressing the needs of low-SES students who rely on limited resources. Together with Peter's unique insight about students, how they learn, and the kinds of classrooms that support their achievement, Teaching English by Design, 2/e is more valuable and relevant than ever.
