How can you get your students excited about English and language arts? We've got a brand new book that will definitely help: Active English: Learning Strategies That Will Have Your Students Asking, “Is That the Bell Already?”

When students are engaged in class, rather than passively sitting and receiving information, they become so involved that time flies. (Yes, author Karla Hardaway's students really do ask, “Is that the bell already?”)

Active English includes a wide variety of adaptable activities that benefit all levels of students, from remedial to gifted, grades 8–12. Students speak, listen, brainstorm, write, role-play, reflect, and play games on a wide variety of topics involving literature, poetry, writing, speech, and drama.

The book also includes detailed lists of opening lines, poetic starters, items, places, characters, proverbs, and writing prompts to provide endless opportunity for creative classroom activities, both written and oral.

Grades 8–12

Review by: Dawna Lisa Buchanan, Children's Literature - September 1, 2010
This resource book for high school English teachers offers a great menu of quick writing activities that can be used to supplement the curriculum and inspire student interest . . . this is a handy reference that could provide add spice to the curriculum, or, as the author notes, provide sturdy support for teachers who are not particularly confident about teaching writing.
