Lanning, an independent consultant, adjunct professor, concept-based curriculum specialist, and former teacher and administrator, shows English language arts curriculum writers and educators how to design concept-based English language arts units that teach conceptual ideas in content, processes, strategies, and skills to help students transfer their learning across genres and ensure that they have conceptual understanding of what they are learning. She considers the term "curriculum" and why it is important, explains the rationale for a concept-based curriculum, and compares the traditional English language arts curriculum to it. She discusses the components of the curriculum and the relationship between knowledge and process, defines key terms, and outlines support for its design and preparation, then guides readers through each step of design, with examples and ways to use the Common Core State Standards. She ends with model units from different districts and grade levels and stories from professionals. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
