Language Arts: Extending the Possibilities shares an insightful, developmental view of the language arts as children's literature, visual literacy, and technology extend the dimensions of integrated language arts instruction.

Brimming with classroom-based lesson plans, new technology features, authentic children's work samples, interdisciplinary connections, and assessment choices, this visually appealing text projects an innovative view of teaching and learning the language arts in the 21st century.
