Language Arts, Volume 94, Number 4, March 2017 - Previous Revision

Language Arts is a professional journal for elementary and middle school teachers and teacher educators. It provides a forum for discussions on all aspects of language arts learning and teaching, primarily as they relate to children in pre-kindergarten through the eighth grade. Issues discuss both theory and classroom practice, highlight current research, and review children's and young adolescent literature, as well as classroom and professional materials of interest to language arts educators. (Published September, November, January, March, May, and July)

"There is increasing consensus among literacy scholars that [the National Reading Panel’s five pillars] approach to reading is partial, overemphasizes constrained skills . . . , and underemphasizes comprehension . . . . In light of growing awareness of the ineffectiveness of DIBELS and other assessments that reduce reading to a narrow set of skills that can be easily tested, it’s time to revisit and revitalize more complex measures of reading processes that capture how readers coordinate information from print and image with knowledge of cultural language patterns and the ongoing construction of meaning.
(“A New Spin on Miscue Analysis: Using Spider Charts to Web Reading Processes,” Karen E. Wohlwend, p. 117)
