The best teachers, says David Kobrin, think about who their students are and how they learn. In this age of standardized tests and "teacher-proof" lesson plans, they recognize that teaching is a rich and complex activity that demands professional skill, sound judgment, and quick thinking. This second edition of In There with the Kids presents the parallel working lives of two teachers, elementary teacher Mel Stainko and high school teacher Hilary Coles. We see these teachers (composites drawn from the author's experience and observations in schools) as they plan lessons, interact with students, reflect on what happens in the classroom, and try always to do better. Through them we are prompted to think carefully about why some lessons work and others don't. Kobrin brings us into the classroom, where we hear the voices of individual students and see how their concerns influence what happens each day. He provides detailed reconstructions of student debates and includes the handouts, exams, and assessment instructions used for selected lessons. At the close of each chapter, he analyzes the characters' actions, the motives behind them, and their effects on events in the classroom. Both practical and inspiring, In There with the Kids demonstrates that by tailoring lessons to students' life experiences, teachers can help students reach new levels of achievement.

The term 'Multiliteracies' was coined in 1994 by the New London Group, a group of scholars who came together to consider the current state and possible future of literacy pedagogy. In the subsequent years, the influence of the idea has been greater than the members of the group could ever have imagined. In this collection, two of the original members of the group, Bill Cope and Mary Kalantzis, have brought together a representative range of authors, each of whom has been involved in the application of the pedagogy of Multiliteracies, in settings as broadly dispersed as Australia, Canada, Greece, Malaysia, Italy, Japan, South Africa and the United States. The chapters capture vivid narratives of school experiences and offer insights into the role of the new, digital media platforms such as online lesson planning, resource development, and classroom delivery, making this book an invaluable resource for Multiliteracies practitioners and researchers alike.
