Portrait of James Charnock

James T.  Charnock, M. Ed

A teacher of 30 years at the elementary and junior high levels, Mr. Charnock is the author of many articles that have appeared in teacher magazines and professional journals. He is a certified reading-language arts specialist. In addi­tion to creating educationally oriented market products, Charnock has been a featured writer/children's book reviewer for The Reading Teacher, a national reading journal, has served on the Editorial Board of Language Arts, a national English journal; and for 30 years has spent time as an educational conference and workshop speaker. Former top students have honored Charnock four times in Who's Who Among America's Teachers and he is listed in Who's Who in the East and also Who's Who in America. Mr. Charnock now volunteers to lead a Philadelphia public school library team, and also volunteers with the Friends of the Wissahickon as a Trail Ambassador and Structures Crew member.

Author James T. Charnock shares the best from his thirty-plus years' experience teaching language arts in The Creative Teacher, a teachers' guide filled with student activities in writing, public speaking, researching, dramatizing, and more.

Charnock's clarity, energetic style, and practical approach make this book a worthy addition to your teaching library. You will be impressed with how simple and fun teaching language arts can be when compared with the onerous and complicated methods propagated in the past.
